I can't answer the NT question but I can say that
although it has been made to work by others, its 
configuration and intialization are not where
they should be.  It is a port of off-the-shelf
PPP code so the core PPP code itself should be OK.

I think there is a dialer and example modem driver.
Ideally, it would be layered so you could use
standard termios drivers.

Basically, it is there and could stand some use
and improvement on integration.
