Bonding Two Point to Point T1's

I have a 2911 with a  Vwic2 T1 card on the remote end going to a 7206 with a PA-MC-TE1, basically 8 T1 cards.  Anyway I will be ordering two point to point T1 lines and since I want it to look like 3 Meg I was thinking of bonding them.  Is that still the best way to set this up?  If so any concerns about setup?

One concern might be how well you want to load balance.  In theory, having MLPPP also fragment packets across the links provides better load balancing, but it also raises the workload on both the sender and receiver.  For a pair of T1s, suggest you don't enable fragmentation.
