Routing to a certain worker

Thanks for your indulgence.

I understand the desire for worker processes to be symmetric.

ProxyPass and upstream allow sticky session/session affinity which does introduce some skew though mighty useful IMHO.  

Do you have any thoughts about use of this?  

I am very new to handler development in NGINX.  It appears that the handlers cannot do this and is heavily discouraged.

With regards,
