Huh, that looks really interesting.  I ran into some problems with a  
heavily loaded box running CARP interfaces where some interfaces  
would fail to the secondary and others wouldn't, leading to some  
obvious routing problems.  I couldn't find a pure CARP way of dealing  
with the problem, it looks like this might be something that'd solve  
that issue reasonably elegantly.
