Would it be possible to connect both incomming DSL lines to a single
BSD box used as the router and then run NAT on both outgoing interfaces
using PF - and then use PF's routing to specify which interface gets
what traffic from inside the network ? That's what I wold try, then
you just have all machines set their default gateway to the BSD box.
