Unfortunately, no, but we're getting closer.

Are you talking about PPP negotiation or about separate invocations of pppd?

If it's separate invocations of pppd, then you can certainly wrap pppd
with a script that checks the exit code (make sure you use the
"updetach" option so you get something sensible), and use the exit code
to determine what to do next.  See the man page for details.

If you're talking about the individual PPP negotiation messages that a
single pppd invocation sends to its peer (i.e., you want to send PAP
Authenticate-Request using user "joe" the first two times and then "bob"
the next two times), then you'll need to modify the source to do as
you're asking.

Fortunately, it's pretty easy to modify.
