I've had ppp-2.3.0 on a 2.0.x machine (I wanted the demand dialling)
for several months, and though I can't say I've tested it rigourously
(ISP dialup over a Courier and ISDN Bitsurfr modem, office dialup over
the Bitsurfr with and without multi-link) I've not had any problems.

So, I'll second that in principle. If anyone wants them I also put
together network-scripts/ifup-dppp et al for my RedHat system (not
that they're much different from ifup-ppp et al).

Just my 0.5c...
