 |i was wrong about the recent post. it is not accurate,
 |that multiple masters are not tried in order ! 
 |but i observed a problematic behaviour when selecting multiple masters.
 |for each request , the whole process of selecting a master is started all
 |over again. i tried the TIMEOUT=hello:5 , to speed up the selection 
 |process ,
 |but without sucess. however it does not make sence to try all the masters

 |process is started.

Imagine that there are multiple clients running on the same host, or
accessing via the same proxy host.

    clientA               +---- DeleGateX ----+
    clientB -- DeleGate --+                   +-- server      
    clientC               +---- DeleGateY ----+

Even a client will make multiple requests on multiple TCP connections.
So there is no way to detect whether or not there are multiple clients
or not on the client-host in TCP level.  Thus DeleGate cannot distinguish
whether a request sent in a TCP connection is the "first" one or not.

Such session can be realized in an application layer protocol, for example
using Cookie header in the HTTP protocol (or using Digest-Authentication).
The DeleGate can send Set-Cookie:MASTER=Y to a client in response when
DeleGateY is selected as a master.  The client will echo Cookie:MASTER=Y
in request, then the DeleGate use the DeleGateY without trying DeleGateX.
I implemented this scheme and it seems working.  I'll open the patch
if you will give it a try.
