I seem dimly to recall hearing of an SGBP group that comprised some 100
or more 5300s, that reportedly worked well.

I've seen an SGBP group that spanned pops working OK ... the idea is
that each pop has its own lead number which hunts into other pops only
if all of the local pop's trunks are full or down. So that way you get
hardly any MLPPP bundles that actually span pops ... seems to me that
this is a pretty good design wrt scalability and resiliency.
