I've got a situation where I have to per-packet, and it's pretty ugly, but
we get more traffic through than we did without it.

How ugly?

Two 1.5 SDSL lines (bridge mode tied to a bvi) and one T1 line, and at
least 6Mb of traffic wanting to get through.  BVI was the only thing I
could come up with (and it was there already) to let me run ospf over the
sdsl links, since the dsl routers do not grok ospf, and I wanted
everything to at least look like it was terminating at the router (there's
a vlan for each sdsl line).

Anyone have any clever ideas for a situation where MLPPP is not possible?
