I must have, indeed. But in any case, at the time I found that portslave
was geared a lot towards the 'getty' side of things, and didn't support
CHAP, never mind MSCHAP with all its frills (not that I think those are
'better' than PAP, but that's what my client needed), so I decided that
hacking all that into it was more work than starting with
pppd+MSCHAP+MPPE and OpenRADIUS, which could also benefit from the

my patch still has perhaps is that it's used in production now and
applies against a production pppd.
