It your switch supports spanning tree you could just use if_bridge
(multiple members but have the IP assigned to the brige interface.) If
your running -STABLE or can wait for 6.3/7 then there is if_lagg which
can run int failover mode as well as aggregation mode.

I've never actually tried either method though so YMMV.
