In debian potato, the /etc/network/interfaces file is setup at install
time like this:

iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet static

if I wanted to ad another card, a second iface entry would likely handle
it... but I'm no expert.  I think the gw route is added after the modem
dials and connects.  Where it's noted that the modem is to be shared by
the network, I'm not sure, probably in one of the scads of config files
in the /etc/ppp dir.  And this config is probably set when you run 
pppconfig, or on install.
