Hi, would this not be covered fairly well by a combination of Link 
Aggregation ( Spanning Tree along with carp. That way you have 
your 4 gige ports in a aggregate group with a second redundant 
aggregate group for failover. Then having another layer of failover 
with carp, or something along those lines. It would need some 
modifications to the code but i think less than the schema you 
I'd say it's something quite different. Joshua is talking about 
different connected routers and thus different routes via different 
*virtual* interfaces, you are talking about different *physical* 
interfaces connected to (probably) one router. Plus the failover.

This means: it would be nice to have both :)
