In playing around with different cards in my server I've been very
frustrated by (among other things) having to manually reset the default
route so that it picks up the new interface (I keep putting the local
network address on different cards, physically reconnecting as
necessary, during these tests).
Shouldn't the default route automatically pick up the new interface just
like link-level (ARP) entries do?
