	hello, there seem to be some problem with "flashroutes" rc.conf
	directive.  it now calls
		route -n flush
	and it nukes some of the important IPv6 routes.

	do people object if we change the meaning as follows?

	$flushroutes: nuke all routes (route -n flush)

	new behavior:
	$flushroutes: nuke IPv4 routes, YES by default (route -n flush -inet)
	$flushroutes6: nuke IPv6 routes, NO by default (route -n flush -inet6)

  E-5. /etc/rc.d/network executes "route -n flush" by default, which removes
       preinstalled IPv6 routes, specifically, a route for fe80::%lo0/64.
       Although this would not be so harmful for daily use, you might want to
       change the line as follows:
       route -n flush -inet
       so that only IPv6 routes would be removed, or add the following
       line in /etc/rc.conf:
       Note that the latter approach suppresses the flush of IPv4
