There are only two cases that seem relevant

1. Shifting unbound source on a connect() when routing changes. Thats
a nice idea anyway

2. Killing connections on a drop. This potentially violates the RFC
check rules on time wait unless you are very careful. Also tell me
why it cant be done in user space by turning /proc/net/ into a set
of temporary 'reject' filter rules
