Actually I doubt that many people use aut-num objects, because they are
at the same time quite complex to parse beyond the trivial cases and
often not expressive enough.

I know that at least some other networks use my rpsltool software, which
uses route/route6/rs-set/as-set objects and an internal description of
the neighbors to build complete BGP configurations:
