Re-read my point: its unnecessary. I didn't say it wouldn't work. I said
the CPU use of doing it this way was unnecessary over a simpler round-robin
approach (After picking an initial random server).
Note: I think using an array of pointers to server addresses would allow you
to do your rotations a lot faster. Think "point quicksort".
