Sorry, but I asked for, how to handle this flag yesterday and I got no response. 
Costin said, that he'll wait for my patch, and I don't want to let him wait for 

If we add a list to the lb_worker, how should this be handled? Lets say it is 
called 'local_workers'. Should the local workers be in the list of balanced 
workers too? If yes, I think this makes the config look a little bit unclean. If 
not, we have to change the validate function more than I want to, because it 
depends on having balanced workers. And with a second list it is possible to 
have only local workers.

By the way, with the same motivation we should ask about the lb_value. It is not 
possible to have one worker with different values in different lb_workers. But 
it may be that one worker is the most powerful in one group (lb_worker) and less 
powerful in another. Ok normaly the lb_values should be choosen in order to the 
power of all workers and not because of one group. :)

I build the patch for the described simple situation. When I understand jk2 
right, this would be the right choice for a more complex environment.

Which way should be implemented? We should find one position and implement it 
then. May be I was a little bit to fast this time :).
