The problem with proxy architectures is of course the second copying, esp. kernel -> userland -> kernel, which can put a bunch of additional load on frontend machines. Using approaches similar to state-full firewall handling e.g. of FTP can be used for this as well, e.g. make it a transparent proxy. This is a lot more work though. I'm not aware of any such Open Source solution though. It shouldn't be hard to do that e.g. in a small kernel module though.
