I know very little about load balancing solutions, but I'm quite sure I don't like the idea of doing it on the client side. The magic word is "cleint configuration", and the less I hear of it the happier I am.

With server-side load balancing, clients don't know, and don't care how many servers there are. With client-side load balancing, all the clients actually need to choose one of the servers from the (localy kept) list. Yes, yes - I know we could download the list periodically from some LDAP server, but I still don't like the idea.
