Subject Re: AvroSink and LoadBalancingRpcClient

The LoadBalancing capability similar to the LoadBalancingRpcClient can be configured for multiple
Avro Sinks using a LoadBalancingSinkProcessor, if you are looking for that functionality.

To implement this in an unsafe way (not checking any of the user's values) would only take
a couple lines of code I believe. It is a work around, but it will enable all of the various
RPCClient capabilities such as failover or loadbalancing mode and allow it to connect to multiple

from AvroSink with several strategies and host selectors. Also, I cannot get information from
source code and user guide. Did I miss something about this?
