Hi Peter,
first I will admit that PPPMain.InstPPP is sort of a hack. I did put a lot of the original stuff
I got just in comments to keep it at hand if perhaps needed it in the future.

Copy/Paste problem. Doesn't make sense really :-(
You can see that I copied these lines from below.

Doesn't hurt as it is but I changed it now to:
	(*MRUWant*) INCL(wo.O, NegMRU); wo.MRU:=1500;
	IF HDLC.debug THEN Debug.String("MRUWant "); Debug.Int(wo.MRU, 5) END;
So it's less confusing.

I'm thinking of where to put it. Because I don't think it's necessary at the moment to send
an update to ETH just for documentation.

No problem with that. You can send me your stuff and I can put it on my site as a
version under development before sending it to ETH eventually.
