Bug Description

pppoeconf should not be in Ubuntu Desktop

As network-manager on Ubuntu Desktop configures PPP connection all by itself, with ppp recommends and ppp-dev build-depends.

pppoeconf should not ship in Ubuntu desktop in Bionic, and thus should not pull in ifupdown on Ubuntu Desktop.

I confirm that we should not have ifupdown in the default desktop install in 18.04 and that it would be reasonable IMHO to move pppoeconf to ship-live. I am deferring to Adam to decide whether to accept this change due to the timing of release.
