	I'm interested in testing, do you have the code on a SCM? I am not using 
openl2tpd myself due to lack of time to port my plugins for rp-l2tp to 
openl2tp but plan to do so soonish.

>> Thank you for your proposal. We already thought of putting the pppoe server before the lac and just do routing between the lac and the lns. Because we've a lot of different places which should be connected to our lns, we do mind about the decentralized ip address management. We want to use radius for authentication of customers, but I'm currently not so familiar with. Is there an opportunity to let radius manage the ip pool the pppoe-server hands out? This would allow a central ip-pool management and placing the server in front of the lac.

	I did some time ago a proof of concept implementation of RFC3817 for 
rp-l2tp. It shouldn't be too difficult to implement a plugin for openl2tpd, 
and I think it fits Robert's model very well (if I understood the graphs
