What did I miss when I feel you could easily take the newly
assigned address from one of ip-up's parameters? From reading
"man 8 pppd ipppd" (... /etc/ppp/ip-up ... "It is executed with
the parameters interface-name tty-device speed local-IP-address
remote-IP-address") I get that there shouldn't be any need for
these kind of hacks. Maybe this was just too easy ...
