[c-nsp] Dual-homing without BGP

I'll also cast a "no" vote on the BGP avoidance kludge.  Running BGP is 
not difficult.  You need not take full tables.  You can reject certain 
routes according to AS_PATH.

Moreover, if they're really concerned about redundancy, I suggest having 
two border routers and running HSRP internally.  Careful: One nails 
routes differently (i.e., not to null) and needs IGP clue (usually OSPF, 
especially on smaller networks) in this case.

IIRC, PBR is no longer process switched.  If it were, that should scare 
anyone away from using it in a serious situation. ;-)
