No, you swapped it. My algorithm does backup, not load balancing :-p. I
get a sort of load balancing because the list is shuffle in each client,
so everyone tries the trackers in different order, but I concede that
balancing was not the design criteria. Backup was.

If I could find a "decent" explanation of "announce-list", I could
reprogram it :).
