allow Floating IPs to point to load balancers

This would allow me to scale an app seamlessly in real time, instead of needing to carefully time it against DNS cache latency.

After playing around with the new Load Balancers for a bit, It seems like an obvious extension. By the way, I'm really pleased with the feature. It seems very polished.

    Awesome! :-) Actually, I was half expecting to hear, "We know, but it's actually non-trivial because of ..."
