Please recall that, afaik, mod_cluster is not AL nor is it part
of Apache. So asking for direction for what is basically an external
project on the Apache httpd dev list is kinda weird :)

In any case, I think the hope of the ASF is that this capability is
part of httpd, and you can see, with mod_heartbeat and the like,
efforts in the direction.

But the world is big enough for different implementations...
