I think it is in mod_jk, I remember seeing the commit. 

And I think I commited it in jk2 as well ( after some modifications ).

Well, there is another use-case with the exact same behavior - Apache2 
with tomcat in JNI mode. All requests without session should be routed to 
the _jni_ channel ( i.e. in-process, minimal overhead ).

It's exacly the same - so be sure I do my best to handle this case :-)

Apache2 acts like a 'natural' load-balancer/fail-over, with the parent
process monitoring for crashes and it starts/stop childs based on

The default is balancing, but you can tune this using weithgs ( and I 
think we use your code for making one instance 'top priority').

Please check the code, take a look and send additional comments/patches.

It's not yet completely done, of course.
