It would be nice to have VM transport organized in standard-MINA way,
currently I'm thinking about a proxy that would be able to forward
request to network services behind it and one of them could be located
on same machine and even running in same VM. Services could be
different ones, but could be also same service which is distributed
for scalability reasons, proxy would be able to distribute requests
basing on current load of all known redundant services behind it and
even discover some new services which appeared during it's running.
I think it would make sens, but I don't have also clear vision which
way would be the best to implement such communication :-)

thanks for response, I would like to go deeper in it, but I'm afraid
it won't be possible during nearest weeks, although for sure I'll
track changes, read some docs and play with MINA :-)
