Yes, but what would be the win? (Other than maybe a cleaner interface in
some cases, where we now we have the default route on the other end, but
don't know its address until the PPP connection is up? But in this case,
strictly speaking, you should use a routing protocol instead.)

I must admit that I liked this feature of KA9Q, too, when I used it. But I'm
not sure its enough of a win that I should have trouble implementing it.
