It seems that LSB doesn't provide any conformant way to read (let alone write)
netstat and route commands are not included in LSB. The ip command is absent
also (I found an article at linuxfoundation.org  stating that ifconfig and
route should be deprecated for ip, by the way). Reading /proc/net/route may
be a solution to reading problem but its LSBness is unclear.
As far as i know, sockets, as defined in POSIX, work most deeply on Network
layer of OSI model. That's the same layer routing happens at. So should the
LSB applications have access to routing table? And if they should---how?
