Multiple DSL lines, load sharing / shaping

Took a good look at that link, sounds like it might do the trick.
However I am curious about something...
We have 5x 512kbps SDSL lines.
Is there any possible way to "bind" these lines together to make use of a
full 2560kbps at once? Because with the round-robin method, it will pick a
random address from the pool (in this case, one of the 5 lines) and utilize
that which will only achieve 512kbps at a maximum. I have heard of extremely
expensive cisco solutions to do similar to this, but we've already forked
out enough on hardware and connections so we're trying to do this part a bit
Look forward to hearing any ideas you might have.
