This will be in the next snapshot.  Thanks Mike for all you have
done with pppd.  

For those who don't know, Mike has it quite stable in his own 
lab.  I think pppd can finally move from experimental and
interesting to really really useful.  Please share some details
with us Mike.. set, baud rate, etc. :)

Congratulations to Mike. :)
