Right now, we only really ever use them in an active/passive type of pattern.

As far as I know, there's no good way to split state creation across
multiple WAN links, as you can only have one default route at a time
in the kernel routing table.

This is possible with some netfilter hacks on Linux. Personally, I
rather like having OpenBSD on the soekris as a router, but if we
really want to utilize both WAN links at once, I think we ought to
consider running a small linux installation instead.

Thoughts?
