Er. Actually, to me, this rather complicates the setup of pppoe on the 
CD. If we adopted this new method, a user would before-hand have to know 
how to manually configure the files to properly set up his connection. 
With the current rp-pppoe program, it's all done for them in a 
wizard-style manner. Unless we can re-create that ease of setup, I'd 
rather not change anything.
