You can achieve this by defining N LSPs that map to one path and M
LSPs that map to another path, in order to get n:m split. Not the
ultimate in user friendly-ness..

but if you really need to achieve this it can be acomplished, at least
in simple enought scenarios:
i.e. if your example is something like 2x1M one way and 1M the other
way. This assumes a single egress nexthop that you are trying to reach.

If you are trying to reach different egresses then you can do unequal
cost load balancing via the link-bandwidth community.
