An issue I have had with owrt is that it used route to enter routes, which
does not support various tables (like dhcp, or babel-pinger).

I think, but am not sure, that netifd in chaos calmer actually calls
the routing commands directly now, so that
behavior could be more correct. I don't know what udhcp uses...

The unreachable syntax was also recently added to netifd, so exporting
covering routes has just got easier.

see: https://github.com/sbyx/hnetd/issues/23
for details.
