Taking a step back for a moment, could networkmanager be a solution
overall to the problem?  I mean, could existing kppp functionality be
ported to networkmanager?  Or at least port over the most essential
bits, kppp could perhaps be moved to extragear to maintain more
advanced functionality.  Of course that is easy to say, finding
someone to do the work may be more difficult.
