The MPLS support is terrible mind you, the hw on the non-8200s can do a 
single label only, so you can't do bypass protection or even an ldp 
signaled l2circuit. If you're really desperate for vpn termination you 
can do manual ccc to an lsp, which works, and commit scripts make it 
much less painful to configure.

That said, isis and even basic mpls support (like ip->rsvp) is a huge 
selling point for me, as is the ability to reuse my existing scripts, 
policies, and other Juniper management infrastructure from the real 
routers. I run isis, I shouldn't have to redist to ospf to talk to my 
TOR boxes, and Juniper scored points big time by getting rid of that 
extra little pain in my ass from Cisco TOR boxes.
