Multiple connections between nodes

Hi all,

Partitioned networks in mnesia are a big headache when dealing with 
large databases. Has anyone thought about changing net_kernel so that 
it automatically sets up multiple connections to each node, using 
different interfaces?? I suppose the source and destination IP 
addresses to use could be configured in sys.config??

I suppose SCTP will provide this capability at the transport layer(and 
when we have erlang distribution implemented over it) but has anyone 
thought of this seemed easy enough to do after a quick 
look at net_kernel.erl - has anyone tried doing something like this?

To keep things simple and predictable we can make sure that only one 
connection is ever used for communication and the next available 
connection is resorted to only when one fails.
