Me as well due to the fact that [zebra/quagga] are not working in
the range i expected them to.

Even though i have not tried it for me it seems like that there is
the possibility that they will work together. 
But consider the following ... bgpd uses a in my opinion new way to
[give/take] Routes from and to the Kernel if ospfd from
[quagga/zebra] somehow does no realize the change or messes with the
routes you will have an unstable "Backbone Router"! ( no fun ?? ).
