I've gotten a bit further now: I've got a script triggered by the
change in carrier status on my laptop's ethernet interface, that
flushes the IP routing table and triggers a DHCP lease renewal.  Then,
the acquisition of the DHCP address lease triggers another script,
which stops the currently running Venus, and starts a new one.  The
result is that a new, working, connection is quickly established.

The down side is that I lose my Coda token, and have to run clog.

Screen is your friend!  :-)
