Please no!  If I wanted demand dial I would have installed diald or
set up the kernel to do it already.  Possibly ask, but IMHO there's
already enough questions asked when you update a lot of packages at
once :).  How hard is it to set up this demand dial?  Maybe you could
set it up so that it just requires changing a 0 to a 1 in a config
file to set it up?  But certainly don't enable it by default.  That's
not expected of pppd (as opposed to diald).
