In the RFCs, CHAP is expanded as...
RFC 1334
Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol

In the pppd man page, CHAP is expanded as...
+chap  Require  the peer to authenticate itself using CHAP
       [Cryptographic Handshake  Authentication  Protocol]

Which is correct?  If the man page is wrong, please change it.
