A friend's ISP recently switched from CHAP to PAP without informing
anyone. It'd be nice if NetBSD's pppoe(4) could attempt multiple
authentication schemes in succession from a configurable list.

Use a DSL service that secretly changes PPPoE auth scheme. Discover
that Internet connection has stopped working.

None provided, sorry.
