Subject Re: Proxy instances?

Is the notion here that you'd run all writes/reads through that node
and let it decide where to get the data from?

I've been working on a C# client library and I've been picking a node
at random from the cluster and letting it figure things out.  Would a
setup like this be better?  Keep all the traffic load off of data
storing instances or would it be better to point at a load balancer
that does it?  Or is the carnival approach (Pick a node!  Any Node!)
