	I have three that I programmed in production:

	- one that proxies tunnels. rp-l2tpd working as a LNS receives an incoming 
tunnel and sessions, calls (as a LAC) to another LNS and cross connects the 
	- one that allows PPPoATM connections. receives PPPoA packets and sends 
them via an L2TP tunnel
	- one that allows PPPoE connections. same as above but the PPPoE discovery 
phase is managed by pppoe-server of rp-pppoe package.

	The rp-l2tp code is really easy to follow and hack with but the problem 
for me is that the configuration interface does not makes a clear (or no) 
distinction between peers, tunnels and sessions. That's why I want to 
change to openl2tpd.

	I do not know yet, i have no clue about openl2tpd internals. But for 
rp-l2tp (almost all hard coded) was easy.
