Ability to switch to a least-connection DNS balancer


Hello all!

Is there any feature planned to give the user control by config of which dns balancer should be used by Kong? I understand that right now the solution is based on lua-resty-dns-client’s ring balancer, would that be simple to just switch to the least-connection balancer (available since version 3.0.0, so should be on Kong 1.1.0)?

Thank you!
