I have thought about trying to assign an address to the bridge. The routing
looked like it would be a problem. If you combine ppp0 and eth0 into the
bridge device br0, I don't think you use ppp0 or eth0 for routing anymore.
I don't think they can be assigned addresses as they have to have addresses
of before they can be added to the bridge device.
