Alternatively pppd could be instructed to not actually configure IP or
routes, but with the plug-in pass the IPCP negotiated data to NM via
MM. Then the NM could either use those data if the interface is
configured for "auto" configuration or enforce connection IP settings.
Not sure though what actually is less complicated here.
