The SNAT support should work fine for all recent v3 kernels... or 2.6.36 (only).

However I would expect that most people use HAProxy for SNAT mode as
long as its not a huge number of concurrent connections 100K+.
We use LVS for DR or NAT and HAProxy for SNAT mode on Loadbalancer.org
appliances and have found it very fast and reliable.
Pretty sure Barracuda does the same as us and Kemp use LVS + a
proprietary software proxy they bought ages ago from an old German
load balancer vendor.
