I wonder why this is in core anyway. PPPoE connections can be 
established with the pppd package alone. The only advantages this 
package has are:

1) A fancy configuration script. With pppd only, you'd have to read 
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PPPoE_Setup_with_pppd and set it up. 
We could include some example configuration like this in the pppd 
package though.

2) A PPPoE server. We don't need that in core.

With pppd, the PPPoE protocol is handled in the kernel (while rp-pppoe 
does it in userspace), so pppd probably has less overhead anyway.

I vote for db-move rp-pppoe core extra.
