Weeeell, currently there is no such message and I would prefer to release the
current version as soon as possible to make sure the Etch installer has
working support for (standard ;-) PPPoE installs for most people.

I'd say this notice should be something for the next release (of ppp-udeb).

BTW, proposals for the short notice are welcome.

This could be added(for documentation reasons) to the future wiki page about
PPPoE (installations) and maybe the guide, too.
