I’m not against this feature but there are two issues with your patch
as it is:

1. It entirely lacks tests
2. It makes the API confusing: there are 2 ways of providing multiple addresses
   and it’s not clear how newConnection’s addresses is different from setFailoverHosts.

I’d rather provide a way to set extra addresses which are then merged with the
list given to newConnection or via setUri:


or similar. Picking a good name is a very important part.
