Yes, Linux Style of managing the Complete Routing via the roting table
(without looking at the interfaces, at netmasks or anything) is simply
GREAT, and the solution is so easy compared to the complicated Lookups of
other Inices, but still more flexible. But:

Checking for the own Address on receifing packages does work always, why not
make it work always on the sender site. There is no win on not receiving
packts for the own address.
