It works like magic.
But then, ... that means I still would have to use a script to mark the
interface as down when the remote gateway is inaccessible. Or is there a way
to automagically mark the interface down if the network is inaccessible?

Good thinking, more specific routes take precedence over less specific ones,
you always forget the fundamental stuff ;-) ... and it's a routing only
solution so no scripts, great.
Unfortunately I'm not in a position to try it so, Ezra, if it works let me
know for future reference. Would much appreciate it.
