Default PPPX vs TUN

NPPD.conf man page marks the use of two interfaces, pppx and tun.

After reading and re-reading the man pages for both tun, pppx and npppd.conf, why would I use pppx over tun?

Is one better than the other? Is one more secure over the other? I realize that pppx uses pipex to accelerate tunneling traffic, does tun?

The examples at the end of the npppd.conf manpage shows one example for pppx use and one for tun but doesn't state why one was used over the other.
