Right, I remember now. At the moment I'm inclined toward leaving the job of load balancing to a load balancer (like haproxy.)

I guess it is feasible to add something like this to the Java client, maybe with naive (RR) load balancing, but done as a strategy so more sophisticated load balancing could be contributed. 

The Riak cluster is an elastic thing and adding/removing nodes is operationally normal; load balancing is a problem in its own right. At the moment I'd say it is only a tentative yes for some future version. Of course a barrage of +1s would encourage a re-think.
