you will also get problems with config files :
pppd and pppd-mschap use the same config file / provide the same config
files etc. if you find a solution : let me know, i'm maintainer of
isdnutils, and this includes ipppd (isdn pppd). i could also release and
additional ipppd-mschap ... so i have the same problems, and till now i
didn't find a better solution, than recommending pppd and not adding
configfiles (even if ipppd doesn't work without).
