Several routes with the same dest would be interesting but how do you
select between them?
What I'm looking for is a way to make a machine use two totally separate
depending on the socket address locally..
I'm currenty achieving this with ipfw fwd rules, bu that has side
effects that are troublesome..
The vimage patches would do this for me but they are only for 4.x and I
way to do what they do in a truely extensible manner that woruld work
for 5.x and beyond.'
