Hi,

I can't speak for the development team, but I think there are numerous technical challenges to overcome when it comes to using traditional Linux bridges and distributed virtual routers. I have a feeling this feature will remain an OVS-only feature. Numerous vendors also implement similar functionality in their solutions (ie. PLUMGrid). With LinuxBridge, HA routers w/ VRRP is likely the best we can expect for the foreseeable future. And that's not a bad thing.
