I don't think it's shipped with the regular distro, maybe (certainly)
with Advanced Server. I can't remember where I got it from, but piranha
mailing list & google will be your friends :)

Browse piranha mailing list and you'll find both the patch and various
explanations about what I've done and how to use it.

But you'll still first have to understand what's going on when using
only two nodes both as RS and director. With DR, it's mainly a matter of
(hidden) VIP handling. With NAT, you also have to handle the default
gateway changing (if active or passive director).
