I'm not going to say that in the errata unless someone is actually
working on a patch for that.

As far as I can see, this comes under the same general heading of "pppoe
is not supported". Perhaps we should add something to that effect to the
installation manual, since it seems nobody is working on it. Does not
feel like an errata item to me; errata are inaverent bugs specific to a
particular d-i release.
