I just can't get twice the 1mbps upload cap, no matter how much I beg
and throw tantrums.  However, opening two (or more) GRE tunnels to the
box sitting at packetworks and balancing the traffic between them, while
not exactly a multi-homed host, should let me nearly multiply that
upstream bandwidth however many times I want while adding a bit of
redundancy to this end as well.  'tis a idea I never even considered
before, but makes me feel all tingly.   I'm not even sure a static IP
would be required on the dsl ends?
