We won't need to change the model at all: we support multiple bondings right
now. The limitation is just in the user interface design. But if Tim can do a
design taking those multiples into consideration, we won't need to change any
of the backend code I've written for the server.

Ah, okay, I see what you're saying. Not a problem. We can get the alias from
the Bonding pretty easily through the Nic.
