Hi, Jim;
   I'm coming up empty on a search against the Google-machine for SURVEY 
protocol. Any pointers you can share?

   I'm also curious what your thoughts are about dealing with growth of the 
worker pool beyond the control of the proxy admin. For example, if I configure 
a balancer for 10 nodes, I have an idea of tuning parameters I might set 
differently than if the number of backends is in the tens of servers.
