There is no sync in Quagga or OpenBGPD either.

AFAIR it was done deliberately since in nearly all cases it would be an error to run an identical configuration on two routers running a routing protocol. You'd want separate feeds/connections to neighbors and to work out the failover using priorities/cost/etc in the routing protocols.

It can monitor a CARP VIP for status to stop/start but that's a bit of a kludge.

Might get around to it eventually but it might cause more problems than it fixes.
