There are many full-featured proxy servers these days.  There's even
mod_proxy_balancer for apache, but that doesn't do high-availability,
which you're looking for.

Check out some of these for reverse-proxying if you don't like perlbal:
- nginx
- lighttpd
- varnish
- pound

All of those can serve as mod_perl frontends.
