Better to have asked then to not ask and remain ignorant.

So I see ... my question is this then ... I've got
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-aggregation.html open as well
and it's using the examples fxp0 and fxp1 ... are these example interfaces
and I would substitute my real, physical devices? That being said ... do I
add the driver created device (bwn0) or do I add wlan0? Or both plus my
wired device? That part isn't all that clear to me.
