Subject: portslave: should support interface renaming
Date: Wed, 11 Aug 2010 22:30:48 +1000
Package: portslave
Severity: normal

It should be possible to rename a ppp or slip interface based on the account
name of the customer, the Portslave port number, or the tty device.

Getting a name of the form ppp[0-9]+ for each session is needlessly confusing.
