Are there any technical, moral or philosophical reasons why we haven't =
ported the userlevel PPP program available in Free and OpenBSD? It works =
through the tun driver. If there aren't any objections I'd like to try =
porting it to NetBSD (I haven't even checked, maybe it'll compile out of =
the box ;-) ).

Reasons? It just seems a cleaner solution than pppd, to my untrained =
eyes. Why have ppp code in the kernel when it can be userland, right?
