Is it possible to do bonding/connection teaming with non-ethernetdevices?

I am trying to set up a mobile router using linux. It connects to several ISPs
using 3G connections, and offers a NATed wireless network for clients.

I wish to utilize the bandwith when all ISPs are available, and
be able to provide internet access for all as long as at least one
ISP is available.

I have looked at bonding and "ifenslave". But I can't use this
because some of the 3G devices provides ppp links like
ppp0, ppp1, ... and bonding seems to want physical ethernet devices only.
Windows was able to do this - but the os turned out to be too unstable.

Is there some other approach that might work?
