If you use multibus, all the paths will be used in round-robin fashion.
You will not be able to prioritize.

It doesn't.

One way to solve the problem: you can do is to change the grouping
policy to by changing policy to be "group_by_prio", and having a
priority handler that would give a prio value proportional to the
bandwidth usage. But, note that this will keep moving the active path
(may be that is what you want).
