Does it give a unique failure code? This is actually the use case that
drove me to add the failonstatus option for ProxySet. For example, some
containers return a 503 when the app is not yet initialized but the
container is up. Granted, you will still have one failed connection per
every X retry seconds, but in high-volume sites a few failures is much
more appetizing than hundreds.
