According to my pppd man page, which is slightly different, there are the 
following options:

    +ipv6  Enable the IPv6CP and IPv6 protocols.                                                                                                                              
    ipv6 <local_interface_identifier>,<remote_interface_identifier>       
           Set  the  local  and/or  remote  64-bit  interface  identifier.

The "+ipv6" line is also mentioned on the DebianIPv6 wiki page, which is where 
I first learned of it.

As for the "ipv6 <>,<>" line, I've tried all of:

    ipv6 2001:4d48:ad51:300::1
    ipv6 2001:4d48:ad51:300::1,
    ipv6 ,

The first two get me the error "/usr/sbin/pppd: Illegal interface identifier 
(local): 2001:4d48:ad51:300::1", while the last appears to do nothing.

This is supposed to "just work", right? :-/
