I've had a couple of swings at this over the years and never gotten it
working to my satisfaction -- for example, its not as simple as that if NAT
is in play and the links are from different ISPs. Existing sessions need to
go over the link they were initiated with in that case.

The closest I've seen is https://speedify.com/ is the closest I've seen to
a believable solution, although you could probably build an equivalent
yourself if you're keen.
