I suspect I am.  At least, I fit the description, and AFAIK nobody else
has done PPPoE for NetBSD....

I'm not so sure - *someone* got it into pkgsrc, and it sure wasn't me!

If anyone has any questions about it, I'll be happy to do what I can to
answer them.  I may not be able to offer real support (unless you are
prepared to pay me, which of course will get more concentrated
attention :-), but I think I mostly understand the issues, and unless
someone else has quietly created a PPPoE for NetBSD and gotten it into
pkgsrc without my hearing about it, I know the implementation
relatively well.
