For exclusively user-space, Eddie (http://www.eddieware.org/) is extremely
advanced and I have yet to hear of any complaints of it. I was thinking of
a more hybrid tool that would still do network-level load balancing, just
with a bit more intelligence in terms of figuring out who should get the
next connection, to take account of non-homogenous server clusters (ie: a
slow computer in a cluster of fast ones that keeps getting more con's than
it can handle because its handling so few).
