That is a good reason ... but beyond that, I'm still currently using SLIP to
talk to my pc532 machine and I've not been able to get PPP working. I can do
PPP on other i386 to i386 links, but my i386 to pc532 link has some problem
that causes PPP to not work. Since SLIP works great for my needs, I have
seen no reason to try to figure out the PPP problem.
I don't have any on -current, so I can't talk to recent versions of SLIP, but
I don't want to see SLIP removed.
