One part of the 0.7 rework we did was to change the way VPN backends
(or modules) worked. VPNC and openvpn backends got changed for the new
API, PPTP didn't. So it won't work at all right now. It basically
needs a rewrite: to use the new APIs of NetworkManager, to not use
it's own ppp manager (NM now provides one) and to remove all the hacks
it had to support random ppp connections that NM didn't support in
