Essentially that is what proxy does now (or did before the balancer 
stuff arrived) - it loops through everything that came back from the DNS 
round robin query, trying to connect in turn until it gets something 
other than bad gateway.

Rather than just the simplistic round robin DNS query, it should query a 
hook (in which is embedded as the sensible default, a simplistic round 
robin DNS query).
