Currently, iptables doesn't seem to support that, probably to keep you from
shooting yourself in the foot. Consider for example how fast the kernel will
fold up if you change that first nybble of the packet from an x'4' to an x'6'
without changing the rest of the packet to match. Suddenly, that sk_buff is
a lot too short.. ;)
