Pgpool-II TODO list

Ability to load balance based on Client IP

From bugid 26: I have recently moved a database from Mysql to postgresql 9.1.5 which is behind a pgpool-II-3.1.4 . Everything went fine until i observed that some "tickets" are not created correctly by the application (OTRS) that populate the database.
After some debugging i found/guess that the problem is the following:
when a cron job wants to create a ticket he has to insert info in abut 10 tables, and i guess that the 2-nd, 3-rd ... inserts depends on the first. The problem was that this operation is not performed transactionally so after the first insert, when the app tries to perform the other inserts, first tries to select "the first insert", but this first insert is still not propagated to all nodes, and the error occurs.
I`m aware of the fact that if this entire operation would be performed transactionally (only on master) the issue is solved, but unfortunately i cannot modify the app.
So i want to know if there is any way that i can tell to pgpool something like :
any request from this ip do not load balance.
PS. temporary i have set the weight factor to 0 to the 2-nd and 3-rd postgresql slaves and it behaves ok, because reads and writes only from master.

Restart watchdog process when it abnormaly exits

It would be nice for pgpool main to restart watchdog process when it dies abormaly.
