Yes.  The point is that "if...", which was missing from the old code.
The point is to delete the default - but *only* if it points out the
"correct" interface.  There's no way to tell "route delete" to delete
the route only if it points through a particular interface.  (Or at
least, if there is, I don't know about it, and it should be used
instead of doing the loop.)

Actually, I don't like the loop.  I'd rather see it parse the output of
"route get default" instead.
