Way to detect PPPoE connection in Rev?

Can anyone tell me how "low-level" I can get with Revolution when it comes to 
configuring network packets?   I've gotten Revolution to successfully modify 
HTTP headers, so I can do secure Digest Authentification.  That in itself has 
made my a loyal Rev user.   To "push the envelope", I'm wondering if I can 
use Revolution to write an app that will detect whether a PPPoE connection is 
available.   Mac OS X does this automatically, however in Mac OS 9, ISP's 
typically use middleware apps like "MacPoet" to connect via PPPoE.   To do 
PPPoE detection, however, I'd need to be able to get down to the 
_packet-level_ of Ethernet calls, and set the "O" frames and "A" frames.   
That may be asking too much - - - - is this something that can be done with 
Rev, or have Rev call a 3rd party plugin to do?
