Without being a Debian policy expert ( :-) ), I'd doubt they'd go on the main
installer CD, at least (non-free not being a part of Debian). I think
people's best option would be floppy-retriever and fetching the right udeb
from a floppy.

It should probably be a matter of changing the PPP udeb, I'd guess. As long
as Debian supports it, somebody just has to do it. :-)
