I thought it was fairly obvious that one would need to take measures to
deal with this.  The simplest is to just put the edited poff in
/usr/local/bin.  You could also just restore poff manually after ppp
upgrades.  New ppp packages don't exactly come out every month.

Yes.  It might even be worthwhile to add this "ip-about-to-go-up" and
"ip-about-to-go-down" functionality to pon/poff (which should be links to a
single script).

It would.
