Ups, I missed that one. Thanks. Thus the only problem that remains with that is
that one worker might be shared by multiple balancers with different methods (if
this configuration makes sense is another story). This could cause problems if
the different balancers use different balancing methods. OTH from a quick look
at the code I assume that this configuration would be problematic anyway as
reusing an existing worker in a balancer causes the parameters of the worker to
 be changed. So this shouldn't really be done. Maybe worth a warning in the
error log?
