[arch-general] Bonding networks with netcfg

So I’ve got access to two networks, a wireless one on wlan0 and a mobile 
broadband one (with a 3G modem) on ppp0, and both have a tendency to be 
rather unreliable. I decided to look up bonding the two, and while I can 
sometimes manage to enslave wlan0, ppp0 always fails.

I’ve followed the information and guides from [1] and [2], as well as 
what Google could find (though most of the information there was 
seriously outdated). I did find a post on the BBS with exactly the same 
problem[3], and I tried what they had used, but it also failed.

Is what I want to do even possible?
