run-time ? config time ? both ? other ?
Our current aim is config time only.

What scope are we talking about here ?
2.4 ? 2.6 ? 2.7 ? other ?
Our current aim is 2.4 and 2.6.
Taking into account the two statements I made above:
Do you think that what we're doing right now might interfere with what
Jamal is suggesting ?
Wouldn't it be possible to do things the old way first and than
convert everything to the new way ?
Shouldn't all this be a part of a totally new project like "bonding2"
