I need to correct myself here. Linux doesn't allow multiple routes to the same
destination with the same metric.

An elegant way to work around this is by adding the ifindex to the 1000. i.e.
Something like this:

ip route add dev eth0 metric $((1000 + `cat
/sys/class/net/eth0/ifindex`)) scope link

The second route (i.e. the default one) only needs to be there if we have an
IPv4ll address assigned. I can thus create it in the avahi-autoipd package, it
doesn't need to be set globally.

Thus I only ask you to replace this line in the network scripts:

 ip route replace dev ${REALDEVICE}

by this one:

  ip route add dev ${REALDEVICE} metric $((1000 + `cat
/sys/class/net/${REALDEVICE}/ifindex`)) scope link
