We should do some work to find "the best" server to redirect a user to, where "the best" could mean:

  1. Fewest users
  2. Closest geographically to the user (based on IP address, I guess)
  3. Closest linguistically to the user (based on HTTP headers)
  4. Closest socially (but I think that kind of sucks)
  5. FURTHEST socially (fewest existing friends on the server, forcing more remote connections)

I think one way to do it is add a weighted score based on number of users, proximity, and default language, and use that to guide the redirect.
