Cool.  Except this is not at all how most people use HAProxy (and I'd
be very surprised if the OP had this configuration in mind).  As you
say, you are using it per client as a connection pool (which I do
advocate, along with using languages that don't require this sort of
hack), rather than as a service proxy on the Cassandra side (which I
don't advocate).
