Has anyone done any work to synchronize the status of a carp(4) interface with a bridge(4)? This would allow two hosts to work symmetric-like at both layers 2 and 3. Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1d) is a suboptimal tool for this because of the relatively large convergence times, even after tuning the STP parameters.
It would be pretty easy to do this manually using shell scripts or perl, but I'm too lazy to do it without checking first. Or maybe I'm just missing some incredibly obvious point.
