A while back someone suggested hacking pppd to run "ip-about-to-go-up" and
"ip-about-to-go-down" scripts, but so far as I know nothing was ever done
about it.  The best solution I can think of off the top of my head is to
run pppd under the control of a script that would do stuff like this before
shutting it down.
