fully transparent ftp-proxy?



The documentation for ftp-proxy seems to imply that it's only
semi-transparent.  ie that although it is transparent to the client,
the server sees the connection come from the proxy and not from the
true IP address of the client.
Is this correct, and if so, are there any plans to enhance it to be
fully transparent?  Without a fully transparent proxy, the logs on an
ftp server behind an openbsd firewall would be rendered useless.
It seems to me that whilst it might require a minimal amount of kernel
machinery to permit setup of the outgoing connection from the proxy,
once established it is identical in nature to the incoming
connection...
Thanks in advance,
