[sf-lug] bonding 3G via bluetooth...

Here's an idea I've been mulling over.

Scenario: Let's say, we have two Bluetooth-enabled 3G phones with "all
you can eat" contract. Let's say, I also have a DSL connection (eth0)
that runs into a home LAN management machine (Linux box to manage
traffic, etc.). What if I install two Bluetooth radios, and create a
bond (http://www.linuxfoundation.org/en/Net:Bonding) say, bond0 = eth0
+ bluepppd0 + bluepppd1 and whenever the machine detects one or both
3G phones, it sets up the pppd and bonds into it, thereby increasing
my aggregate bandwidth?

Has anyone tried this?
