      We should detect when a connection is made via the Proxy Protocol, and if so, when a new Client is created, we should mark it as having been created through a load balancer (e.g. via a boolean flag isFromLoadBalancer).

      We'll need to figure out the best way to test this:

      • Rely on driver's tests?
      • Talk to Evergreen to add a "load balancer" build variant?
      • Use mongobridge?

      Either way we should talk to Driver's and see what they do for tests.

      If the testing is too much work, whoever works on this can split it into another ticket. It might be worth considering the testing concerns first in case we need to coordinate with other teams.

      This ticket is timeboxed at 7 points, so if testing takes longer then another ticket will be required.
