D) you did not incorporate any of the source specific openwrt
babels init and config mods like

        append_parm "$cfg" 'src_ip' 'src-ip'
        append_parm "$cfg" 'src_eq' 'src-eq'
        append_parm "$cfg" 'src_le' 'src-le'
        append_parm "$cfg" 'src_ge' 'src-ge'

E) And there was a longstanding patch in babels that I hope made babeld,
or was solved some other way...


It would be best if someone could revert commit:


Until these two functionalities were actually merged and tested
together properly.
