Thanks. The suggestion by Jacob Reif is simple, and it works. However,
requests don't actually get load balanced, since you're just looping back to

The suggestion by Graeme Fowler with the mangle rule and lo:0 alias on each
real server appears more robust and is what I want to have happen,
unfortunately it doesn't work.

Trying that solution, if I have my ldirectord.conf set to 'gate', I never see
packets from the real server hit the local director. If I set it to 'masq', I
have the same initial issue - packets get sent to a real server, but because
the ack comes back from an unexpected src, the packet is dropped.
