[ale] Switch redundancy and physical network layout lameness


I totally forgot about that. You are a genius, thanks. I guess the  
only concern might be when we go to gigabit ethernet, but the cables  
may not support that with all 4 pairs anyway.  I am using the ethernet  
like this is in my own home and it works fine with huge amounts of  
mpeg2 from my mythtv machine on the wires. I have one pair for  
telephones and 2 pairs for the ethernet.



100 megabit ethernet only requires 2 out of the 4 pairs of wire.  You
might be able to eliminate some of those switches by just breaking some
of the single ports out into pairs.
