Totally, if the memory / code overhead is not too big.

Actually ethos uses basically PPP's framing.

When writing it, I skimmed the PPP RFC's and they seemed a little too -
not-hackable-in-a-day, with quite some legacy stuff not needed in the
ethos use case. But if there's already a perfectly working PPP
implementation... ;)

How much memory and code does it use?
