And you should really put corresponding "route del"s in there too, otherwise 
you could end up with duplicated routes and all sorts of funniness if your IP 
is changing a bit (not too likely, but better to be neat than sorry).

Something like :

down route del -net y.y.y.y gw z.z.z.z
down route del -net a.a.a.a gw z.z.z.z
