Now I have an "ip" that knows about metric but... :-)

It seems metric is used as part of the key used to identify the
route. Is that right?

e.g.:

# ip route
...
default dev eth1
# ip route replace default dev eth1 metric 1
# ip route
...
default dev eth1
default dev eth1 metric 1

I was sort of hoping it would just change the metric since the
destination, device, gateway etc. all matched :-(.
