Tried the CLI(birdc) and I am a bit confused as to whait it can do.
I only see this when I press ?:
bird> ?
configure [soft] ["<file>"]                    Reload configuration
debug ...                                      Control protocol debugging via BIRD logs
disable <protocol> | "<pattern>" | all         Disable protocol
down                                           Shut the daemon down
dump ...                                       Dump debugging information
echo [all | off | <mask>] [<buffer-size>]      Configure echoing of log messages
enable <protocol> | "<pattern>" | all          Enable protocol
exit                                           Exit the client
help                                           Description of the help system
mrtdump ...                                    Control protocol debugging via MRTdump files
quit                                           Quit the client
reload <protocol> | "<pattern>" | all          Reload protocol
restart <protocol> | "<pattern>" | all         Restart protocol
restrict                                       Restrict current CLI session to safe commands
show ...                                       Show status information

Not a lot, seems that the CLI only can do very limited configuration or
am I missing something here.
