Funny I asked the same thing awhile ago:

On a different note, could your review the concept of creating multi-hop
gateways that I filed at:

Think there might be some interest in having multiple gateways active
with NM, is there? If so, would the above ifcfg layout be OK once the
rh-plugin has the support? Sorry, I didn't take that idea farther then,
too many packages to patch(NM being one of them), and I don't have the
connections to get all the packages that touch the main routing table
patched. On a side note, shorewall has been able to support multiple
gateways for a while, with two distinct ways of configuring the routing
tables, one using the "main" and the other using the "default" routing
tables for the gateways, note the USE_DEFAULT_RT part, have a look at:

What's your take on the use of the routing tables?

just some thoughts,
