It is my understanding that Linux now supports multiple routes to a
destination (often referred to as multipath routing). Multipath routing
is more powerful, but that doesn't make BSD less ``correct'', just less
The reason Linux does it and BSD doesn't is because people are actively
overhauling the linux routing code and no-one seems to have stepped up
to do the same with NetBSD (*BSD whatever..). There are many people
(including myself) that would love to do this but don't have the time.
