then you need to make connectins "sticky", a given client always
connects to a specific server.  I think you can do that in openbsd 3.8
and it might be in 3.7 also.  Or you couls buy a cisco local director,
or what ever replaced it.

"We trained very hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to
form into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that
we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing, and a wonderful method it
can be for creating the illusion of progress, while producing confusion,
inefficiency and demoralization."
-Gaius Petronius, 1st Century AD
