Another wrinkle -- Leopard doesn't seem to set routes the same way
Tiger(and Windows, etc) did.

Our roadwarriors have used the VPN to become part of the home network
remotely, and then any and all destinations (except the local
interface's network) are through the PPP/L2TP/IPSec.

Just FYI that we have observed it as different.
