Thanks. It's clearly going to take more work for me to understand
this, but it is a good document. Even knowing thet the proper term is
"multi-isp" is helpful. 

Overall I think that IPCop is the wrong tool for this job. I think it
does not even have iproute2, which many tutorials (including the
Shorewall page) want me to use. In the interest of laziness and impatience
I may chicken out and use DHCP reservations to solve the problem.
