I forget from previous conversations - Is this intended to be part of a
default install - i.e. whether somebody asks for it or not? If so, it
seems broken by design to me.

This and the ignore-everyone-not-using-ATI-or-Intel text
console/modesetting thing is really making me seriously consider switching
distros.

I haven't actually looked at the implementation yet, but does it interact
correctly with dhcp, NetworkManager, wifiroamd, etc. (i.e. stop those
services from simply restoring the default route immediately.)
