There is a single point of failure for sure as there is a single proxy
in front but that pays off as the load is even between nodes. Another
plus is when a machine is out of the cluster for maintenance the proxy
handles that automatically. Originally I started it as an experiment,
there is a large number of long running clients and using a proxy was
an easy way to reduce configuration.
