fair load balancing?

Is there some way to set Perlbal's config to avoid sending another  
request to a backend server that is still processing a long request  
(unless all backends are occupied)? We have legitimate reasons for  
some requests to take a long time, but because our backends are a pool  
of mongrel processes, we don't want simple round robin balancing. I  
looked through the various configuration options and so far didn't see  
anything obvious (at least to me).
