No, we don't provide them out of the box yet.

ppp -- yes, quite likely.
pppoe -- probably not, although you're not the first one asking.

Meanwhile, the ppp package found in Red Hat Rawhide builds on Owl
without a single problem (rpminit; rpm --rebuild ppp-*.src.rpm).

Well, the patchlevel and back-ports we're using are newer than that,
but you're right in that it's high time to get it updated.

We're working on an update to 2.0.x.  Yes, the new package will use
proxymap.

As for a time estimate, I don't know.  This depends on a volunteer
who's doing it in his spare time.  But it's on my list of things which
need to be done before Owl 1.1 and I wouldn't want to delay that for
too long.
