Have you looked OpenBSD with pf? You can create rules that map outbound
session to a different DSL router, interface, and/or gateway based on
any number of rules. The man page pf.conf[1] and more precisely the
FreeBSD with IPF \ IPNAT [1] or PF as well.

You have a number of options but consider the long-term.

I guess you've already bought the second DSL line ? The cost of the lines ( and routers ) combined might not be far away from another type of carrier that may work with your future requirements. Look into bonding T1's.

If you don't already, it might help to start analyzing your traffic characteristics.
