Use "bimap" (bi-directional map) instead of "map".

Some how or another this feature was never documented or used in
examples, at least not up to 3.2.10....

In the latest beta the manual page says:

       bimap    for setting up bidirectional NAT between an external IP
                address and an internal IP address
