Fine with me; I've been exclusively running the standalone babeld. Note
that the new multi-wan IPv6 stuff makes babel not pick up the default
routes for ipv6 unless you add extra import_table statements. My
/etc/config/babel has this in it:

config general
        option 'conf_file' '/etc/babeld.conf'
        list 'import_table' '254'
        list 'import_table' '1007'

The last value might vary depending on the setup; not sure how the table
names are generated by netifd, but it's been quite stable on my device
at 1007.

There's a patch for babeld to support this in ceropackages, but if
you're going to go to newest git it should have been merged upstream.
The init script in ceropackages is patched to support this syntax;
haven't gotten that upstreamed to openwrt iirc...
