Yeh, I thorta that. Whatever process is doing the load sharing would have to
keep an eye out for SYN packets & the like. Any TCP/UDP contol packets like
SYNs, ACKs etc. would need to be duplicated, one for each interface. Then
you could have one socket connection for each interface.

haven't had a chance to look at how multi-head ppp, & channel bonding handle
this, probably does something similar.
