Oops, I've missed it while searching through the archives - sorry for
that. Anyway, there are no ideas if it should be fixed and when,
so I guess raising the issue once again won't do much harm.

Personally I'm happy with just #ifdef'ing out routing code in the
function, but it is by no means a solution. It's also not really
difficult to have one more parameter like remote_gateway passed though
the stack of all VPN-related function and let
nm_system_vpn_device_set_from_ip4_config() decide whether to put a
route through the device or through the gateway based on
(remote_gateway && *remote_gateway) - the question is whether it is
needed or there is some different solution to this problem and someone
works on it say for 0.7.1.
