If you do a static 2x2 division of the traffice for each branch, it's
easy. Get the dsl line into the same machine openswan is currently running
on and add the interface declaration to your ipsec.conf. The other
solution is dynamic dns-based loadbalancing, which is a bit harder to
implement. I suggest you get the dsl line working and you will have the
setup working in no time. Just watch out for left/leftnexthop parameters
in connection declaration and make sure encrypted traffic get properly
