Handling Dynamic Backend Redirects

Is there anyway to catch & follow a 301 redirect from a backend server
to a host that has NOT been defined as a backend in varnish?
I have succeeded in intercepting & following a 301 redirect from a
backend server when it is redirecting to another backend server that has
already been defined in varnish.
However, I am researching the viability of putting varnish in front of a
set of servers that work together to form a storage cloud (with
potentially hundreds of nodes in the cloud). A GET can be made to any of
the servers. If that server does not have the content, it issues a 301
redirect to the server that does. Since it is possible to add new
servers into the "cloud" at any time, it would be highly desirable to be
able to follow a redirect to a host that didn't have a backend entry in
