i'm not so sure about this one. if i have "t-dsl" as a profile name, i
will not be able to specify any overrides for this profile, because
shell won't let me have "ppp_t-dsl_mode" and/or "ppp_t-dsl_nat"
variable. so, the translation here is not really needed, imo, and,
perhaps, could even be considered harmful. perhaps we should do one of
1) demand that ppp profile names should be "shell clean" and document it
2) if a ppp profile name is not "shell clean" simply do not evaluate
profile overrides and use defaults
