Currently we do our own load balance of terminal servers in a application
group. Supported Windows terminal servers provides load balancing using session
broker service and we should make use of it instead.

This leads to that we could remove complexity and duplicated code paths in our
server code base and also drop the wtsload component from WTS tools package.

Need to make sure you don't need any extra expensive editions of Windows to get
this feature.

The product council considers this okay to implement as long as there isn't any
major extra burden on customer caused by the change. E.g. that they have to use
a different version of Windows or add extra other products. If such a problem
is discovered then move the issue back to the product council for further

A result of this is most likely that we cannot monitor load of Windows servers
in tlwebadm. The product council considers this change acceptable.

rdesktop (and associated tools) is being removed from the ThinLinc product.
