sounds like a good idea; then we don't have to maintain the part
of ppp that traditionally lived in userland, since we have it
in debian's ppp package (which is kernel-agnostic)

i don't have time (or interest) for this myself. could someone add to
the Hurd's task list in Savannah about writing an interface-compatible
ppp translator?

(yes, i know this implies some redessign in the interface between pfinet
and mach devices, but this is necessary anyway when we want to support
userspace drivers. e.g: /dev/eth0)
