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.
