Oh nice! BUT that's not in the current release of pppd (2.4.1) but is in
the new beta version (2.4.2b3).
Thanks for alerting me to the possibility though, it's made me read the
release notes for the beta, which includes some good stuff. MS-CHAP-v2,
MPPE, PPPOE for example.

Didn't know that either! Pity half my customers have ethX/pppX
combinations ethX being the ADSL router and ppp0 being the modem backup
:-( Also depends on the ADSL modem being used.
