Dialing in to a home LAN

MacInTouch Home Page
It was unclear to us in Apple's various online descriptions, but the modem version of the AirPort Extreme Base Station [$241 at Amazon] not only supports dialing out to an Internet provider, it also supports dialing in to your own network.
The feature is configured via the AirPort Admin Utility: in the Show All Settings>Network panel is a checkbox for Enable PPP Dial-in, along with a Configure dialog for entering a single username and password, plus time-out parameters.

Wild, I never noticed this.
