By tproxy you mean transparent proxying as in doing proxy requests from nginx while using clients IP?

It is far more simple to use the Real IP module ( pretty much all webservers (apache - 
mod_rpaf / lighttpd - mod_extforward etc)  have such modules in one or another form ) rather than trying to achieve it on TCP level.

And it is also straight forward to implement it in any other backend application.
