20Gbps for FWSM & HA

I was reading that you can now support up to four FWSM with 20BGPS of througput in a sigle 6500 chassis.

My question to the group does anyone know if your able to make them all redundant for each other? OR has Cisco just put a market play saying vlan 1 and 2 are on one pair and vlan 3 and 4 are on the other pair and 10 gbps can go from vlan 3 to 4 and 10gbps can go from vlan 1 to 2?

Does anyone know if I can put all Four vlans on all four FWSM's and maintain the same state tables across all of them?

Re: 20Gbps for FWSM & HA

I think you can't combine all four of them for a single vlan. This is what the documentation states (But it could be out-dated as well):

"The Cisco FWSM can be deployed *in pairs* to provide intra- or inter-chassis stateful failover services that help ensure resilient network protection for the most critical environments. Both Active-Standby and Active-Active (Cisco FWSM Software Version 3.1) failover are supported"

Even the bundle options are for two at once:
