This is what I wanted to know. Is it possible to make an option to get them after NAT in and pre NAT out?

No i dont plan to. Why do you want to go that path?

I think it's the only way I can shape/share my ingress traffic between a process (eg. bittorrent/squid) running on my shaping machine and traffic that is forwarded to my LAN. I masquerade onto one real dynamic IP.

In the case of pre nat outbound - I know people can mark pre NAT and shape on that, but it would allow people with big LANs doing NAT to use WRR/ESFQ on src for egress traffic.

I don't think this applies to my setup Masqerading many local onto one real address.

If you have local on eth0(or substitute with whatever device you have
local on), the example i gave should work fine. You just have to change
the way you approach the setup. In case i didnt understand you, please
post the details of your setup.

My setup is very simple - the only reason I use IMQ+NAT patch is because I want to use my gateway/shaping PC to run bittorrent and I want the LAN machines to have priority/fair share of incoming traffic. I guess my setup is not that common - more common are people who run squid on the same PC they shape/do NAT on.

ppp0 one dynamic real IP ->  gateway PC -> eth0 -> LAN
                                   -> local process.
