The required kernel level mechanisms already exit: bounding, teql,
equal cost multipath routing. Only multipath routing is strictly
conforming to the SPEC of keeping an "conversation" on the same line.
Anyways, you just need a routing daemon in user space that listens
to the multicast group and sets up the required bundles via one of these
This is like TV. I don't like TV.
