Before diving in the code, I'd like to inquire why you think that a
proxy should forward all user connections with the same credentials
through a single connection to the master. AFAIU this complicates the
implementation quite a bit and may negatively affect performance as
this design implies joggling with sync sequences.

What if the user deliberately created several connections so as to
avoid throttling certain transactions on hitting the network buffer
limit? I don't think that it's right to push all requests through
the same queue then.
