Not exactly, for that you would need a RFC3817 plugin. As I said it should 
not be too difficult to write one. Mine does this...

[PPPoE client]---|[PPPoE server]+[LAC]|---[IP link]---[LNS]---...

- rp-pppoe is used as a PPPoE server managing the discovery phase, then the 
PPP packets are "cross-connected" to a L2TP session.
- rp-pppoe server is modified to query a RADIUS server before 
"cross-connecting", that allow me to terminate the PPP session in local 
with a pppd too.
