   What is "old syntax"? Do you mean "route add|del ... netmask ...",
   etc?  If so, then definitely - yes, we should.

Ok, hopefully I won't misplace it again... :-)

   Let's split the task. Do it your way and I'll add the "old syntax"
   later, as I did for ifconfig.

I never really liked the way ifconfig's argument parsing was done,
mostly since it conflates lots of parts into a jumbled up soup.  Would
have rather seen specific wrappers for each platform instead.
