Nonsense. If I want the computer to automatically install routes
when I ifconfig an interface up, I'll do it in ifconfig -- it might
be useful to have an option to big brother the kernel for people who
want to tweak their networking, have written their own replacement
for ifconfig, but who don't know enough about networking to add the
proper routes.
