I have, and thinking about doing again, used ppp over ssh to
build tunnels. Not of all that much use under VM to go from
instance to incance, where hiper-sockets/vlan is better, but
it can be handy to connect two machines' vlan without having
to deal with the networking crew.
Have you looked into ppoe or stunnel?
