This is what I was afraid of.  I am *NOT* talking about NAT traversal,
at  all.  The   IPsec   endpoints are publicly-routable  Internet   IP
addresses.  The   NAT  happens BEFORE the  IPsec  tunnel,  to  make my
internal  network   look  like the  remote   network without requiring
routing between them.
