It's cool to personally implement it if you want to made a NAT-ted node
visible: run pwnat on both servers and fire up tor on the internal one.
Here in Italy we've a big provider which heavily use NAT (Fastweb) if
you dig up the mailing list archive you can find a guy (Ian, maybe?
can't recall right now) who was able to publish a NAT-ted node using
iptables and an external host.

The only drawback of such solutions is the 1-to-n kill ratio: kill the
external node and you kill n clients behind it :(
