We use 2621's w/AIM-VPN for some small remote offices, so they just have 
two tunnels.

THe limitation on them seems to be 600pps before you suffer serious 
drops and CPU load.
If that's below your anticipated traffic levels, their OK, but it seems 
pretty underpowered to me. (I dont think I'll be buying them anymore.)
