This looks very interesting.  I'm busy testing with a switch that
claims 802.3ad support.

We're making extensive use of vlans to increase the number of
interfaces availabble to us using switches to break out gigE into
100M interfaces.  The bandwidth problem we're having is to our
provider, a 100M connection, and we're looking at doing exactly
this.  However, it appears that this interface can't trunk vlan
