L2TP dialer included as default

Hello guys,

For a long time cable users were suffering for the lack of a L2TP dialer
in the default ubuntu setup.
What it means is that users installed the OS, but had no means of
connecting to the internet. 
It affects only users who have no router and are connected via cables
(not DSL), but it's still a large amount of users.

Please consider including this tool in the default ubuntu install. 

This specific tool is only useful for users in Israel, as it does not
yet support manually entering the L2TP host address(only choosing from a
list of Israeli providers), but it will soon.

If that's not possible, at least add it to the repositories, so it'll be
available for install.

If this isn't the right place to discuss this, please let me know where
I can bring this up.

Thank you,
