Honestly, I don't know how to make it work on win32.  What I need is:

   - A way to redirect TCP streams to a local port.  This could use
     some pf variant, or not: any good TCP/IP stack should be able to
     do it.

   - A way for a local application to learn the original destination or
     port.  On BSD, this is /dev/pf and ioctl(DIOCNATLOOK); on Linux,
     this is getsockopt(SO_ORIGINAL_DST).

It doesn't matter whether the underlying implementation uses pf or
what; what matters is that the feature set above is available.  If
somebody tells us the right way to get this working, we'll try to
get it done in the 0.1.2.x series.
