Default pppoe redial when disconnected


I've set up a pppoe connection to my ISP with pppoeconf(8), and now I
can connect to it using `pon <provider`, and disconnect using `poff
[provider]`. I'm wondering, is it possible to configure this connection
to redial if it gets disconnected. See, if I plug out the cord then it
never gets connected again, I have to manually connect using `pon
<provider>`. Is there a daemon or something which listens when the ppp0
device goes down, and redial if needed?

My config file:
# cat /etc/ppp/peers/digi
# Minimalistic default options file for DSL/PPPoE connections

#lcp-echo-interval 30
#lcp-echo-failure 4
#mtu 1492
#maxfail 0
#holdoff 20
plugin rp-pppoe.so eth1
user "myuser"
