Unforunatly, if you have more than one pptp client, ppp doesn't give
you enough information to make routing decisions. What's needed is for 
pptpd to maintain a mapping from the client's real IP address to the
address pair assigned to the PPP link. Then the ip-up script can do
something intelligent.
