15 You bring up too good points. What, exactly, is the definition of system? If
16 it is 'everything you need to have a network connected box, so you can go
17 get anything else you need" then I DO think PPPoE should be in it, and maybe
18 ppp or whatever is current in the way of dial-up. They are both quite
19 equivalent to dhcpcd, and neither is all that big, I don't think. The real
20 question is, what is System?
