SPANS Vs Taps

As I was doing a design today. I found that I had a bunch of 100 MB
connections that I was going to bring into a aggregation tap. Then I was
thinking, why don't I use a switch like a Cisco 3560 to gain more
density. Anyone run into this? Any down falls with using a switch to
aggregate instead of a true port aggregator??
