All well and good, however I can happily do NAT on a local connection 
using iptables and it works. As long as the returned packet goes back 
through the NAT process and can get reversed on the way out, it should 
(and does work iptables) work the same.

It works, but it's a pain in the ass for troubleshooting. I know IPVS 
well, but others who work with me don't...
