 The cluster logic is sort of implemented by this client library. If you write 
this at higher level the scalability becomes an issue. For 10 servers it is 
alright. If you want to retrieve 100 rows, and there are 100 servers, you will 
have a total result set of 10,000, which should be re-sorted and the 9900 of 
them should be droped, and only the 100 should be returned.

 Anyway, what I want to know is, if there is such a functionality offered by 
some C library.
