I believe you can do it with tproxy 2.x ( kernel 2.6.18 ) 
tproxy 4.0.3 ( kernel 2.6.22)  and tproxy 4.1.0 ( kernel 2.6.24 ).
IMQ is not available on kernel 2.6.25 yet, but it is not totally
impossible to use a replacement or a work-in-progress version.
In all cases, it is not a straight forward thing. You need to get 
ready to patch, patch and patch. But with determination, it will work ! 

Out of curiosity, if you are doing tproxy, why do you need to do NAT ?
Do you have multiple path to the internet ?
