if you use smpppd, dialin-command is "/usr/sbin/cinternet --start",
hup-command "/usr/sbin/cinternet --stop".
no need for special privileges.
(maybe needs to be member in dialout). could restrict this further with
forced command in "~/authorized keys" ...
or two [possibly zero passwd] users named "dialout" and "hangup" with a
minimal wrapper login "shell" that just executes the required command.
or ... reimplementing the wheel ... timtowtdi :)
