You'd need to prod the particular Spin maintainer for an answer to that :)

I could not comprehend the specific part. Windows installations and
modem as router bit ...

Ermm... we need to figure a way out around this. There has always been
plenty of software which have been in the repos and, we had been
required to install them on boxes. So, there would be a way around
this. To begin with perhaps, checking if NetworkManager actually
intends to have the 'classic' rp-pppoe functionality (via
u_name/p_word) integrated is a place to start.
