Just a reminder about this, providing a way to phase out a server by only accepting existing
sessions/routed requests. 
|51247|New|Enh|2011-05-23|Enhance mod_proxy and _balancer with worker status
I've reviewed the other patch and
I had a similar idea, wondering if the route-only intent would happen if I tried to set lbfactor=0
but it only allowed values 1-100 and I worried about the complexity of changing the lbmethod
formulae so using a separate status code seemed cleaner.  It's a bit of a magic value, but
an intuitive one I think.  On the user surface lbfactor=0 requires less change than my ROUTE_ONLY
to the configuration and balancer-manager but it needs some documentation to clarify the intent.
I also attached a patch to for the
trunk, but since I'm having trouble with the overall compile it's "in theory".  Please forgive
compile issues, but I wanted to at least share the thought and will update when I can verify
a compile and test run.

In the end, either solution can work, and my hope is that multiple attempts at the same goal
make a stronger case to bring the functionality to the 2.2.x stream for people to enjoy sooner
rather than later.

I hope to spent some time diving into mod_simple… I have some
uncommitted patches that I need to re-look at.
