Is it possible to spoof a MAC or create a virtual MAC address with the
IPaddr object?  I noticed when heartbeat bounces, the MAC address of the
IP changes (understandably) to the NIC's MAC, which might be an issue
with external firewalls doing NAT.  

I know that Windows load balancing will create a "virtual MAC address"
for each cluster created - is there a way to do this with drbd and
