with  the current codebase you will have to compromise on either

1. clients load balancing on servers


2. servers replicate between each other.

These two are mutually exclusive at the moment. but the HA xlator (not yet
released) used in combination with AFR will match your requirement set. the
HA xlator does not really need the code infrastructure change of 1.4, but in
terms of the project roadmap (priority) it sits in that timeframe.
