If you set your threshold appropriately (based on your service rate) and
go with my second "suggestion" (really phrased more as a question) of
returning a 503 (Server Busy) status instead of issuing a redirect, I
think you should be fine and it would require the least amount of work
(I haven't actually looked at Brantley's code, but it sounds pretty
straightforward).  Although I do like Christopher's "gatekeeper"
solution, as it could probably be leveraged to provide similar services
for other applications as well.  It could also be implemented as a
simple CGI script, so you wouldn't have to have two machines (or even
two instances of TC).  If your front end is Apache with mod_perl
configured, a pleasant evening playing with IPC would probably produce a
decent solution....
