Rather than use PPPoE, why not use PPTP?

Most proxies can be configured to along the lines of "You can have it if
I've already got it" - I would suggest using a peer to try and fetch it
if that cache doesn't have it.
I wouldn't be so keen on the "upload it if you have it" idea, except for
rsync-ing between proxies perhaps. Otherwise things get all messed up.
