What I would mean by it is "the remote address, and everything within the
implied netblock, is across this link". Basically, the situation is that
one of my dialups is really a gateway for a network of about 16 computers,
and rather than having to muck with routes, I'd like to just say "when
this link is up, this whole block is across it".
