Neat idea. But some points:
1) Can't you do the same thing with the shared IP living on your router
and doing DNAT based on the formula you described.
2) The load is not fairly balanced...
3) If I spend so much money to by a switch, I'd not like to degrade my
switch to act as a hub.
But, very nice try :-)
Hou je maar goed.
