Not currently.  If you have a good idea for how to extend the OVS BFD
support to be more flexible, we'd accept patches.

No.  I hadn't heard of multi-hop BFD before, so I looked around a bit
and found RFC 5883.  That RFC, though, doesn't really provide a
specification for how to do this.  Is there a detailed specification
somewhere else?
