Isn't there a problem with dynamically changing the kernel's routing table
(via a slattach/sldetach mechanism) while user level routing agents
such as egpup, routed, or gated are running?

This has typically not been a problem for hardwired SLIP connections,
since the slip interfaces can be configured before routing agents start up,
and are left alone thereafter.

One solution would be to home all dial-in connections on another host
that would presumably use static routing, but that requires the
"host" to function as a "gateway", which is something I would like to
