I presently use request-route.

I don't quite agree with that.  What if she needs to choose between calling
her ISP, her office, or her university?  Can we make pppd dial different
numbers depending on the host the packets are for?  Might be doable with
the active-filter option.  Too bad we don't have it.

I'm going to switch to it soon.  I'll probably either add it as a choice in
pppconfig or write a seperate configurator for it.
