OK, but still what are the remotes to connect to?
If they are dynamically determined then I'll need to fix the
way the workers are determined.
Right now each physical box we can connect to has to be at least
once specified in the config.
The question is: Is it OK to resolve that on the first
successful request on the unspecified host?

It is not a problem to add the worker dynamically if never specified,
but I'm worried about the security in that case.
Is the NoProxy meant to be used in such situations?
