accepts that non of the distros feed their patches back into pppd
upstream right now. This is a big problem actually.

I am just looking into this from a pure academic point of view in what
is the minimum requirement to get PPP up. For example on a 3G network
that doesn't do auth or anything. Just pure PPP encapsulation.

And I do wanna enable PPP over RFCOMM sockets directly. That is just the
reason why I started looking into it. Since RFCOMM TTYs are just stupid
and painful.
