[avahi] multiple network interfaces

Is it possible to have avahi work on multiple ethernet ports?

I'd like to be able to have redundant physical connections between a  
system and a switch - each ethernet port would have its own zeroconf  
ip address, and avahi would respond on all ports with the same name...

So someone doing a gethostbyname() would get multiple A records for  
the same name, and be able to connect() to any of them. If one  
connection goes down, a reconnect would go to one of the other ip
