Yes NAT and MASQ solve the most common class of problems.

I was musing on the more general case of a single public routed IP
address and then only private nets inside.  Since it is nearly
impossible to get a set of net numbers the interesting cases of public
to private nets needs more than a nat/squid solution.

              /-<-->- 192.168.2 <->\                 /-<-->- 192.168.4
              |                    |                |
   public <-->|-<-->- 192.168.1 -<-|->- 10.0.1.0 -<-|-> 192.168.5
              |                    |
              \-<-->- 192.168.3 <->/                 \-<-->- 192.168.5

I see that the original poster solved it by getting the sense
of direction corrected on one of the boxes so we are good enough
for now.
