Yeah, I just cut a PO for (6) Juniper ACX5048 boxes

I gotta have options... I can't just be cisco only.

Thanks for checking - saw this in the product announcement, couldn't believe
it.  Especially as this is just control-plane stuff which is already in XR
4+XR 5, so it was consciously taken *out*... (or "we didn't think it's
worthwile to port the eigrp process to Linux").

(And yes, I'm fully aware that using EIGRP has lots of drawbacks, like,
"vendor lock in" - but I still like the protocol as such, given that it has
had fast convergence, LFA, and all that nice stuff since 15+ years now... -
but finding out that EIGRP will even lock me out of *Cisco* products now is
just a tad annoying...  well... so I can just go and buy some other vendors
nice-and-fast 1RU box, right?)
