Of those who have used Quagga or Bird, or anything else,
would either of them be appropriate and/or well suited for
use as an iBGP blackhole route server?  We currently
do blackholes via manual config on one of our real
routers but are wanting to add a software-based (on linux)
system where we could script a way for some of our tech
support folks to add blackhole routes at the direction
of a network person where they can just enter a command
and the IP address.

seems you want something like quagga on a secured host... that ought
to be fine, you could even just make it an ebgp peer of 2-3 devices
and use that with a route-map to reset the next-hop, there by not
messing up your current nice ibgp mesh.
