any way to do this is really crude, when it comes down to it.  I
emailed Manuel after creating the original version of that wiki doc,
and his comment was "that's exactly how I would do it".  That original
doesn't work for PPPoE clients though.

Maybe assigning a spare interface the same subnet as the DSL modem and
plugging it into the WAN side would be a clean solution.  Sometimes
things get weird when two interfaces are plugged into the same
broadcast domain, but in this case I don't know if it'd be an issue.
