This is actually fairly easy to do.  Its called NAT (network address
translation).  Stick a NAT box in front of your client that picks up
the packets in promiscuous mode (unless you can get the router to
rewrite the MAC to you) and then deliver on to the client.

Not really.  SOCKS bounces are quite old now and are trivial to do.
