This seems to be a roundabout way to setup failover on error
and confuses what disabled=true means.

So let me get this straight, please correct me if I am wrong.
As of 1.2.11:

If disabled=true for a worker that worker can still receive
requests if:
  a) Another real worker has redirect={disabled worker}
  b) A request has a JSESSIONID with the disabled worker jvmroute

If you really want to disable a worker completely you need to use
the new stopped=True property?
