Can we at least put a patch into route to strip the host portion. This is
the way I use route. I want say: route the net for which this host
address is valid. In this way, a simple shell scripts can say:

echo -n "Enter IP"
read ip
ifconfig eth0 $ip
route add -net $ip

This is used on a single floppy linux router. It doesn't have awk, perl
or anything else that I could use to change the ip address.
