How many servers do you have that this is a concern?

Have you considered just putting perlbal or a load-balancer appliance  
between varnish and your backend servers?  Then the dedicated device  
can take care of load-balancing, fail-over and all that fun - and you  
can use the management systems there to take backend servers in and  
out.   Varnish then will just have to do what it does so well, caching.
