Brad, The round-robin (doesn't seem to be implemented at present) and
random balance method for web_proxy SERVICE are self explanatory.

Could you elaborate a bit on the sendstats balance method ? 

According to the docs, the StatsListener classes listens for UDP
broadcasts from web nodes describing how many children they have. Is
this via some other Apache module ? How would this work for a non-Apache
