In a transparent http proxy server I wrote a while ago, we used to use
tproxy for making outgoing connections appear to be originating from a
foreign IP address, but moved to inserting an iptables nat rule from
the proxy app every time an outgoing connection needs to be made, due
to the pain of having to patch in the tproxy patches every time we
needed to do a kernel update.

I'd love to see working tproxy functionality merged upstream for that
reason alone.

I'd also love to see the old tproxy API go away entirely.  It was
always a bit of a pain to use.
