  Re: proxying, it currently keeps track of number of outstanding
packets to each home server (i.e. sent but not responded to).  It can
limit the number of outstanding packets to a maximum, but it doesn't use
that counter for anything else.

  With a few lines of code changed, the "load-balance" method will be:

1. choose home server with lowest number of outstanding packets.
2. if multiple are found with that number, randomly choose among them.

  This means that when a home server goes down, any requests it hasn't
responded to will count against it.  Almost all traffic will go to the
live home servers for that load-balanced pool.  And the minimum number
of packets possible will be lost.
