There'd be less trouble if we all had automatic testing, so nobody
breaks stuff somebody else relies on.

See, you have committed something that made my internal tests turn red:

If I just had an URL indicating when *I* break something *you* rely on.

BTW: How does multi TCP BTL works? I see num_links, but I wonder if
kernel channel bonding would achieve the same results...
