Ignore DNS

Hi All,

I very often would like to make a request to a specific IP Address, but keep
the host header etc exactly as if curl had done the lookup via DNS.

For eample if I have 3 web servers behind a load ballancer, I would like to
be able to make a request directly to Machine1's private address, with excly
the same header as if it had resolved to the LoadBallanced IP.

Is it possible to do something like curl --user-this-ip ?
