Since all these products are bridges, wouldn't it make sense to just have
an Open/FreeBSD box at either end with two nics?  Both os's can do IPSEC
tunnels, and both end nodes will only be bridging a single MAC address.

You end up with a "clean" network design (since you've got an actual
endpoint or 'router') and you can encrypt your traffic with a bit more
confidence than with the WEP stuff...
