yes it is.

and what i want to try doing is a bizarre case, load balancing without
handling bgp. off the cuff, perhaps a hook or a netgraph node which round
robins my source ip address over the two interfaces. of course, once a
flow goes over one particular interface, it'd always use that interface
till that connection is torn down. in cases where HTTP/1.1 is used without
keep alives for example, each IMG could be pulled over a different
interface, in effect multiplexing both connections.

perhaps, i'll go read up on netgraph implementations and try something
here.
