Users say this to strong-hand developers, it's not something you
should ever take very seriously.  And even if Linux may simply not be
for them, well that's fine too, and implementing something as obscure
as HDLC PPP one way or the other is not going to change that.

I mean, be realistic here.

Are we going to have three copies of code implementing the same
thing because some HDLC PPP users threatened to defect?  That's
simply rediculious.
