I believe mod_backhand could do it alone, but that's not mod_proxy. 
None of the approaches I've seen for using mod_rewite with mod_proxy for 
load-balancing handle the high-availability part, i.e. removing servers 
that have gone down from rotation, but mod_backahand does, and it 
handles sticky sessions.
