I know this has more to it than just this CVS
commit, but it triggered a few thoughts.

Is it really wise to differentiate OSPFv2 and
OSPFv3 with the ospf[46] keywords?
>From what I've heard there has been talk about
supporting several simultaneous address families
within OSPFv3 just as with IS-IS. Now how would
you configure that if it's called ospf4 and ospf6

With ospf[46] it feels like we're abstracting
something that shouldn't have an abstraction layer
over it in the first place. ospf[23] or just ospf
and ospf3 as juniper calls it is fine imho.
