I also sat down to do EtherChannel-compatible support.

I have code written.  It is missing some (minor, IMO) pieces, and I
have been unable to test it because by the time I had it done the
situation had changed and it was no longer wanted by the place that
initially wanted it.  I can't even be certain it really is compatible
with EtherChannel; it's based on informal and possibly wrong
descriptions of EtherChannel.

It's also for 1.4T.

But if anyone wants it, feel free to drop me a line.
