[Openswan Users] Backup routing

I think I might have an answer - this is using OpenSWAN for backup
routing when the primary telco circuit goes down.  

I can put together a monitoring script such that...

When the primary telco route goes down, do this:
  ipsec auto --add my-connection
  ipsec auto --up my-connection

Keep monitoring, and when the primary route comes back alive, do this:
  ipsec auto --delete my-connection
  ip route add (telco route)

Has anyone tried this or am I the pioneer?
