This topic is probably not for squid-users list but for squid-dev list.
Take a small peek at:

Sorry that I cannot answer on the roundrobin questions but while I was 
working on a simple load balancer script what I did was:
Use an array of numbers and shift from it each time while pushing back 
the object into the array.
In golang I started pesudo that a go routine(something like a forked 
process\function) is managing the shift and push or loop operations.

All The Bests,
