Well, netfilter can handle outbound NAT on multiple IP addresses just fine.
And if you assign multiple IP addresses to your load balancer, you could
put *those* IP addresses in a load balancer, and wind up with a much wider
range of port numbers to play with.
See? Round-robin DNS could be useful even with a full load balancer
sitting around being useful too :-).
Or am I missing some reason why this wouldn't work?
