[OpenLayers-Dev] Client side load balancing

I am looking at adding some client side load balancing to my OpenLayers
app and was wondering if anyone has done something similair.
Since a browser only ever opens a maximum of 2 connections to the same
domain I am hoping to decrease the time it takes to load tiles by
getting my layer to pull tiles from 4 domains (which will intern open 8
connections instead of 2). I am planning on loading an array of
available domains at load time. Then when OpenLayers requests a tile it
will choose a domain from this array (either round robin or randomly).
Has this already been done? Does anyone foresee any problems with this?
Thanks for any info,
