Heh. Yeah I doubt that'll fly.. 

I think I'll settle on piping specific traffic through each interface,
and in addition have a small shell script in cron, that will check that
the two interfaces are up and running.. if one should go down, route all
traffic through the working one.. Not pretty but it should do the trick.
