Thanks for the suggestion. I had thought of that, but all my
front-end servers are also back-end servers. (I'm just letting the
users come in on any server -- usually the correct one -- and want to
transparently connect them to the correct back-end if they happen to
come into the wrong server.) So, even with just 5 servers, that's 20
tunnels to keep afloat through reboots, etc. In principle no problem,
but it's a lot of balls in the air.
