I think the way to go is to have a ip rule option in which the admin can 
add routes which get consulted only by the icmp source address 
determination logic. I can assume that some other installations use 
other interface number logic or multiple public addresses. This kind of 
lookup seems to allow all possible lookup scenarios.
