Comment 2 John Schwarz 2016-01-07 08:51:56 EST
So this is a somewhat-duplicate bugzilla of [1]. Long story short is that nmagnezi tried to fix this issue, but the fix was soon reverted because it breaks backward compatibility, since the original addition of router:external was somewhat of a special case (it used the extra argument mechanism of argparse, unlike the rest of the arguments) and further attempts to fix this issue are still ongoing upstream [2]. See [3] on the ongoing upstream discussions about this issue.

TL;DR: The current implementation reduces user experience, upstream is aware, they are trying to fix this themselves.
