As appealing it is to say everyone, present company excluded, is
incompetent, I think explanation is more complex than that. Solution
has to be economic and marketable. I think elephant flow detection and
unequal mapping of hash result to physical interface is economic and
marketable solution, but it needs that extra level of abstraction,
i.e. you cannot just backport it via software if hardware is missing
that sort of capability.
