I stand corrected. I believed they had "multiple red interfaces" 
working, but I read:
- Fail-over (manual) to alternative Internet Connection (Control page 
button, eg Ethernet to PPP/ISDN))
Which seems as close as they got. I do think their suggestion is 
particularly bizarre though. Maybe just hacking on an IPCop distro is 
the way to go then.

My apologies for the red-herring.
