The Linux cttproxy patch allows proxies to be "fully transparent"
masquerading using the original clients source address on the
connections to the backend.

Has some concerns at the TCP/IP layer and a lot of restrictions on how
it can be deployed, but eases deployment in some cases as the origin
server logs is not so disturbed..
