doesn't the zebra vtysh daemon provide the ability to get to all the routing
protocol daemon cli from a single interface (listening on a single port)?

it's been awhile since i looked at zebra, but the last i remembered, someone
was asking for zebra to include "end" at the end of "write term", so that
RANCID would treat it like a cisco; presumably they were not having problems
getting RANCID to talk to zebra's CLI, so perhaps they were using vtysh to
do this.
