RE: Multiple PPP Configurations

See the attached for how I do it.  Creating /etc/ppp/chatscript.work
and /etc/ppp/chatscript.isp and /etc/resolv.work and /etc/resolv.isp
are left as an exercise for the reader. This could be simpler and
less extensible or even more belt and suspenders than it currently
is, but I think this strikes a nice balance.  YMMV
