Might be interesting to give Perlbal (http://www.danga.com) a try as
an http proxy.   Looks extremely configurable and supports ssl.  They
also use an interesting technique where the backend node can return a
reproxy command if it's busy, and the proxy can then send the request
to another node.  It also appears to be able to only send connections
to nodes that are free to service a request.
