Thanks for the suggestions.  I found the tproxy4 code you made
reference to above, and I have looked at the patches.  This definately
looks like an improvement over the NAT based approach that I have been
using to date.

I have some questions about the tproxy4 patches posted to the netdev@
- how can I access the latest version of this code?  Is there a
  repository I can checkout the source from?
- how stable is this code?  Is it ready for production?
- what does the userspace code look like?
  From reading the patches, I would expect something like
  fd = socket(...)
  setsockopt( fd, SOL_IP, IP_TRANSPARENT, 0, 0 )
  bind( fd, foreign_address, ... )
  connect(...) or listen(...)
