Strangely I think the kernel does this.  I'm not going to try it right 
now - I'm downloading a few things.  But from memory, the first 
interface you bring up gets set as the default route.

I can see the logic - for every machine except a gateway machine, the 
default route should be set to your only network interface.  Only 
machines on multiple   networks have an issue.
