I don't think many people need to add a new tunneling protocol.

If we can do like following:

  # modload pipex_core.o
  # modload pipex_l2tp.o
  # modload pipex_pptp.o

Then we don't need to reboot to add a new tunneling protocol.

Pipex needs some hooks to protocol handlers, but they can be replaced
by generic protocol switches or pfil_hooks.  If we can do it, pipex
can do loaded like above example.
