After exploring available options, I've decided to use:

(1) kernel-, not user-space, pppoe
(2) native scripts, not rp-pppoe
(3) manually-configured iptables; no SuSEFirewall2
(4) 'raw' iptables, i.e. no shorewall-like wrapper ...

Now where should the start-pppd-on-boot logic go? Lots of choices ...
but what's best/recommended practice?

You throw away all your manual configuration and use yast to configure
your ppp connection to be enabled during boot. Make sure you use the
traditional method (ifup) and not NetworkManager. Your custom firewall
script you throw into /etc/ppp/ip-up.d.

There really is no need to do everything manualy.
