Add "load balance by request path" feature to load balancers

I'd love to use one load balancer with one SSL cert that can distribute API requests to multiple pools of droplets based on request path. That will allow me to reuse the same SSL cert for multiple smaller API services that share the same domain.

Requests to https://api.xxx.com all go to the load balancer where they are SSL terminated.

Requests to /api1 are routed to a set of droplets
Requests to /api2 are routed to another set of droplets

    Hello, Thanks for the feedback. We are already considering this feature, it's a cool improvement and very likely to land in the future, but we don't have dates to announce yet. Keep an eye on LB updates. Thanks Rafael
