That was the idea. I was, as noted, mostly talking about router
interfaces with only one network (block) behind it. I gather a large
part of it comes from dialups, where the remote network is a /32.
in any event, I'm not sure I made the query explicit enough, from a
couple of replies I got: the knob I'm specifically interested in says
"don't forward packets with source addresses that can't be routed back
out this port".
