As was mentioned almost a year ago, I will be happy to help do updates,
and maintenance on a website.  If the site were moved to Allen's server
I'd be happy to mirror it (100 Mbit pipe, Dual 450 PIII's, 1 gig RAM,
lotso disk space, etc.).  I don't have a problem with whoever hosts, it,
but it's next to impossible to go to the website, download usable source
and install it anymore.  The source has changed drastically the HOWTO's
are old (and for old distributions/kernels) and the installation
procedure in general is too difficult.  I would be happy to to help with
some of these things.

On an aside, the pptpclient uses ppp-mppe as well, is it the same code
or do we have dueling efforts going on (and also conflicting packages)?
