Not that I know of. I'd recommend looking at Zebra, but it seems
 from the OpenBGPD testimonials, that many of their users think
it's better than Zebra.

Well, some of it, but I believe that a lot of the heavy work
lies in stuff like longest-prefix match processing, which
is not that easy to do efficiently in erlang.
