How to add routing isn't so much of the problem, but where to add it, and
where to get the ip used to add it.  The above ip command should work fine,
and I'm fine with putting it in the vznetcfg script, but the question is
"where do I get the veip from?"  Like I said, it seems the IP_ADDRESS in the
.conf would be the place for it.  However, with the ip there, it tries to
add to venet, and the vps _does not start_ without the venet interface
setup.  I could create another variable for the IP, or get it in another
roundabout fashion, but it seems that there should be an elegant way for
vznetcfg to get the ip.  Even a way to disable IP_ADDRESS from being added
to venet would work.  (or a way that causes it to just fail at venet network
setup instead of preventing the vps from starting at all).

However, the second veth device in VE should be configured as well.

I have no problems setting up the interface on the VE side.
