Traditionally, "BUGS" doesn't per se mean "BUGS" but rather
"Things worth noting". It is worth noting, IMHO, which protocols
ppp will carry, since it isn't documented in any other
way. Documentation is always good.

Anyway, I've fixed it, so it is done with.

If you would prefer, you could move the caveat to earlier in the man
page, but I think it should be documented.
