[Deploying Sakai] Load balancing and sticky sessions

Hi all,

The current UPMC load balancing is done by IP-based sticky sessions.

This is inefficient with users going through proxies and requests done 
by the main portal on behalf of users.

Our load-balancer admin offered to do the load-balancing based on a 
parameter in the URL sur as:

http://<sakai instance domain name>/...?server=<serverId>

Can this be done and if it can, how do I do this ?

Please note that each Tomcat server is behind its own apache HTTPD 
server  and accessed through mod_proxy.
