Hmm.. with LVS-NAT happening in OUTPUT, it may not be possible - or at
least not useful. I'm using DNAT before LVS-NAT to redirect the VIP to
a different internal IP for certain source addresses. If LVS-NAT
happens before DNAT, DNAT could only be used with RIPs which I can't
imagine to be useful at all...
