Yes, rp-pppoe has a use as server-side pppoe.
To get it back into shape it needs to get converted to autotargets
(right now it's an old-style package and we want to get rid of those)
and also upgraded to the latest version.
Features can be accepted if the upstream maintainer(s) of the package
accepts them too for a future release.
Patches that fix bugs are always welcome. They should be reported
upstream too.
