one thing you might want to watch out for is that depending on your
distro / environment, restarting networking (or even just losing
your link for a moment) might lose that routing info on the live system.

for "traditional" debian/ubuntu networking (/etc/network/interfaces),
you could put in an "up" stanza in your config:

	iface eth0 inet dhcp
		up ip route add blackhole...

I think NetworkManager will may respect that on systems that
use /e/n/i.  Don't know about RH/FC but would imagine they have
a similar type of hook action.
