I have thought about attempting this several times, but I have problems so
infrequently that I haven't yet bothered.  But... I've thought about adding
some code to the notify script to do whatever is necessary to "switch"
either the failed job or all jobs to the next modem.  This gets a bit
complicated, though, when the same phone line is connected to both modems.
