mouse-pppoe (from pkgsrc) uses (or lets the kernel pppd use)
/etc/ppp/options to configure the PPP link.
One of the pppd options is ``defaultroute''.
``defaultroute'' works with dialup PPP (last I used it, under 1.5), but
the option appears to be ignored by pppd when used by mouse-pppoe (at
least for me, under 1.5.2). I assume that this would satisfy Rick, though
neither of you has mentioned the pppd defaultroute option.
I haven't really had time to play with this much. I just add the route
manually when I bring up the PPPoE link, for now.
