[Spread-users] Spread Behavior?

I've been reading through the Spread docs, and am unclear on whether
or not I missed some things.

Is it possible to have a cluster of spread servers for redundancy
purposes, to basically allow a client to connect to 1 IP and not worry
about what server they're connected to, or must a client always bind
to a specific server?

Spread can guarantee that a message makes it to all servers, correct?
Does it also allow confirmation to the sender whether or not all
receiving clients processed the message successfully?

If a Spread server dies while messages are in the queue, or still
being distributed, are those messages gone forever, or does spread
maintain it's own list of active messages, so that they can be
restarted, or requeried upon restart?
