Other possible drawbacks:
- multicast is hard to configure; does it require root?
- dmucs probably relies on being able to hand out
  unique server suggestions to each client;
  if there are multiple load servers, they can't
  do that.

Still, I like the idea, and I've been trying to figure out how
to do something like that myself.
