I guess we should create a directive like DefineWorker (I do not really care about
the exact name), that enables the administrator to define / create a worker.
That would be really handy for mod_rewrite as in the reverse proxy case the number of
different backend targets are usually limited and known to the administrator.
This would avoid the need for nasty tricks like "pseudo balancers" with only one member.
