would be nice to redo the load balancing so it supports single system
image (session handling distributed globally) and improve its robustness,
especially under heavy loads. If it was written in Java and integrated
directly into tomcat, that would be nice too. Right now it suffers from a
single point of failure (the mod_jserv.c dies, the load balancing
dies). Removing that and rewriting it as a true distributed system (no
master or a load balanced master) and allowing it to kill hung JVMs would
be nice too.
