This is what I have tried in the past (and just tried again). It breaks
the ssh link, because then the ssh packets follow the routing rule, and go
over the ppp link contained by the ssh packets, and so on.

I imagine a host specific route for the distant ssh box would fix this,
but I can get the darn things to work...
