Some time ago @dmbaturin told me that it's pretty difficult to implement in 1.x
Just wondering if this should be added only to 2.x

I will look into it. I think it is feasible to add to 1.x, but we have to think about the cli. We have to treat the default VRF in a way, so it doesn't come in the way of users who don't want/need to use VRFs.

If this will be included, someone has to make deep testing of quagga vrf-related patchset. Looks like it's described here: but I'm not sure, whether it's included in upstream quagga or not.

Absent full vrf or vrf-lite behavior, there is a means of achieving a subset of this behavior using only iptables.

My principal use case would be the creation of a "Management Interface."

@whiskeyalpharomeo you can do that already with the existing CLI.
