Yes, but a future 3g profile, which is really really needed, would work
without interfaces. You would only specify either a TTY (or optionally a
bluetooth BDID and port for rfcomm) and some options like the APN, and
it would establish a connection. I never got motivated enough to write
that, sadly.

I could probably test PPPoE and bridge, when I finally get to break my
computers again.
