Ah excellent... Demand dialing has a modem/isdn connotation so I didn't
think I'd want to use it. I tried rp-pppoe-3.5-21 and ppp-2.4.2-6.3 + demand
(current rawhide ones didn't work) and it's just about the way I want it to
be now. Seems to give up permanently if the network isn't up on the first
try though, if it drops afterwards it does recover nicely.
