Oh, cool, thanks for sharing!

New challenge when deploying cluster onto cloud-
Just rewriting the MAC addresses does not deliver packet to destination 
because every two machines on the cloud are not on the same physical 
network. Network devices between the two discard the packet.

Solution? Encapsulate the packet in some new packet- implies extra 

=> Points to the bigger problem of Software load-balancing in a cloud 

This just-for-fun experiment is turned out to be more fun than I thought 
it would.
