I totally agree that it would be nice to do such things. serge even
mentions "more intelligence within the process of distributing jobs to
clients." in this TODO list.

Uploading without caring for the state of the server is just not helping
 here. "Server load too high, unlikely we can upload after rendering,
waiting 30s.." is a symptom of the uneven load distribution, not a bug
in the server (or client for that matter) which could fixed by removing
the check which generates this message.
