Is it possible to include node load into the consistency hashing function in riak-core?

Hi riak gurus,

Riak is a perfect key-value data store that allows to distribute load across the nodes based on the Dynamo principles.
What I’d like to achieve is to have the preferred list be sorted based on the current load (maybe erlang:statistics(run_queue)) of the nodes.

Is it possible to change the hashing function somehow so that the vnode on the node with the minimal load is returned as the first one?

Best Regards,
