Thanks for the tip, Jan.
I'll dig around in the udev rules and see what I can do about running
a small script for the add section.
I don't think I need anything special for the remove section. I
experimented by pulling out the surf stick without first ending
wvdial. The pppd dies, wvdial tries a redial, complains that the
ttyUSB2 device is missing and gracefully exits. I don't think that I
need to take down the firewall after removing the surf stick. Correct
me if I am wrong.
