is there a way to get Varnish load balancing (the director) to support 
sticky sessions?

Or do I need to put a load balancer behind the Varnish that ensures that 
a client with a given session always goes to the same backend server?

Right now, it looks like I need:

   LB -> apache1/mod_inflate -> varnish/esi -> 
apache2/mod_proxy_balancer -> app servers

to get ESI support, gzip-ed content delivered to the client and sticky
