This may be the case now, but pretty sure we went down this road YEARS ago and even with BindAddress, packets were still being sourced from the main IP address. In the mailing list archives this argument may exist. I vaguely remember being told by Hugh that it was not possible in Perl at the time to choose the source address to respond from.

Again, not arguing that now; just saying what we ran into in the past.
