Yes. What I don't understand is, why anyone would do anything *else* :).
Seriously, IIRC, that' show netiso and netccitt worked in 4.3-Reno, at
least as far as they worked at all. (they've been fixed a lot since.)
That is *the* right design choice, given a BSD networking stack.
as there a conflict between ISDN, and the ppp code requiring that the
lower-level device implement the tty software interface? That would
explain a lot.
