Two main differences:
- BIRD has a more "system", less "network" approach to its
configuration: to reconfigure it, just edit bird.conf and send it
SIGHUP (Quagga has a more Cisco-like "change the live config through
the CLI then save it" approach).
- More important, from my limited experience, BIRD tends to be less
buggy than Quagga, particularly when using OSPFv3. Quagga's ospf6d
has been described by its authors as "alpha/beta quality" and this is
quite close to the truth.

so it would be easier to have it in DL. If you don't want to ship both I
will have to maintain a separate patch; I can perfectly understand
this. I can't promise I will track upstream BIRD releases closely as we
don't tend to upgrade our DL boxes very often.
