[Spread-users] connect to client in group

I wonder if this is possible, or easily implemented, first let me set
I have a logging client running on machine A. It joins the group
(imaginatively named) logger, with a random (e.g.tmp_1234) connection
It looks at the membership list and if there is no other client named
logger it reconnects as logger.
A second client, running on machine B. joins , finds there is already
a logger running and stays connected using it's random name.
If the first client disconnects, or the machine hosting it dies, the
second gets the message and re-connects as logger.
This gives me a simple fail-over mechanism.
Now to the question.
I want to be able to send a message to the client logger in the group
logger irrespective of the machine that its is connecting from.
So instead of #logger#machinea something like #logger#logger.
Any suggestions ?
