On my list of things to do is a module that is able to locate backend 
servers using zeroconf/bonjour, and this sounds similar (although not

Does a generalised server-wide hook/provider exist to do "lookups", 
where a lookup could be something trivial, like round robin DNS, to 
something more complex, such as what you're proposing?
