Yes. You have to define a set of destinations which you can load in the
script using load_gws(), and every call to next_gw() sets the ip/port of
another destination as ruri, until no more destinations are available.

You can find an example here:


It's for a lcr-version which I have extended a little to be able to
group destinations according to their capabilities
(http://linguin.org/ser.php#lcr-cap), but you should at least get the
idea on how to do it with the vanilla lcr module (just leave out the
argument in load_gws()).
