That is the effect I want to achieve.  But these rules need to be
enacted dynamically as each client connects to the proxy.  I had hoped
to leverage the connection tracking that tproxy was doing in order to
ensure the ebtables nat rules had the same lifetime as the associated
tcp connection.

And, as Balazs suggests, I also need to grab the orig_mac from the
client connection to use when setting up such a rule.
