bgp will negotiate/agree on a holdtime interval for each peer when the session 
is being established (lowest holdtime wins, i believe).  if these two routers 
are the only bgp speakers with the specified interval, then that session will 
be the only one to use the value.

with cisco's current implementation, the specified keepalive interval will be 
used for all peers on the router.  i don't believe there's a way to define the 
keepalive interval on a per-peer basis.
