Hi all, hi Lou,

I think this makes sense to use the new address-family definition for

About configuration, this may lead to problems.
Is it possible to have a compilation flag in order to maintain old style
too ? ( like you demonstrated it for show commands ?).

- That means that further developments will need to rely on this format. (
evpn will become l2vpn evpn ).
- Also on the issue mentioned, there are some bgp related commits, but I
don't see vtysh changes.
And there will be vtysh related changes.
