layer 7 is expensive cpu and throughput wise. However one 
solution fits all applications, which makes it easy for the 
bean counters to pay for layer 7. Most LVS users have found 
that the problem they initially thought could be solved at 
layer 7, could be solved at layer 4 with a bit of 
application rewriting, or some other clever modification of 
the system (eg apache modules, database replication.) LVS is 
for the people who don't want to shell out a lot of money. 
Writing code in LVS to handle layer 7 would be difficult for 
the small number of people that need it.
