Definitively. Having to run a two daemons that monitor the routing socket
and have them interact, just to make one of them do the right thing, sounds
.... not quite right to me.

Wether this routes should go away on behalf of the kernel or the routing
daemon should explicitly prune them - I don't know for sure; I would
probably prefer to have userland deal with this.
