dest-hash ?



  Hello.
  
  I have two upstream ADSL links, and PF with route-to/round-robin works
very well to balance outgoing connections over both links.
  However, round-robin brings a little issue.
  
  There are web sites that can't understand that a single session can use
two different IP addresses.
  ICQ also doesn't like it. There's no way connecting to an ICQ server if
the IP address of every packet changes.
  Although it won't solve all issues (especially with servers that use DNS
to balance the load), would it have been possible to implement something
like "dest-hash" so that a destination always get the same source address?
