Ah. Yes. Looked at the new version, not just half of the change;)
Seems yours is a lot better worked out and looks way cleaner:-)

Two comments:

a) do we really need that su -c ""? I have no idea what ppp_user had
    done so far (did anything)?

b) could you grab that last change, that rc.d/jail has as well, so it
    would be possible to start/stop/.. a single instance by giving the
    profile name after the start/stop/...?

Software is harder than hardware  so better get it right the first time.
