However, you are probably a lot better off to just use LVS-DR.
It allows the (actually requires) the return path to the
real servers not to go through the Linux Director.

Actually, this isn't true. I have a LVS setup with a mix of LVS-NAT and LVS-DR. All traffic passes through the LVS boxes works just fine.

I use LVS-NAT for my SMTP,POP3,IMAP stuff going to internal servers
I use LVS-DR to handle a /24 subnet for SSL servers going to two internal servers.

The only thing I had to remember was to tell the router to NOT NAT traffic from the SSL subnet
