Outch! That option to use simple and cheap cards for datacomm is used
often, but the providers like to sell special cards and special tariffs
for it... They know how to force you to pay for that :)

I agree, that is a nice idea, even I never saw your car :)

Ups, the cutoff was hard. I already shared my comments on how to
implement this driver structure and as there was no one complaining for
good reason, so I already implemented it in the branch. It will come.
And to get back to PPP, it would then be easy to modify it to connect
through any kind of character device.
