Yup, we use it on a community meta-network (a network composed of
tunnels across the Internet). We just added two more nodes this morning.

Either "copy run start" or "write file" will do the trick.

Note that Quagga writes the file from scratch, and thus it loses your
comments in the process. This sucks. See below.

Restart the daemons after editing them. This is my preferred way to make
changes so that I can actually comment my config files.

Alternatively, for a small change, I'll edit the config file then make
the same change in the "live" interface, skipping the "restart the
daemon" step.
