What happened to roundRobinLoadBalance?

The Connector/J documentation used to have an option called "roundRobinLoadBalance" that supposedly was going to be available starting in version 3.1.2. But now it is gone, and I can only find mention of it on this evidently outdated mirror:

and here:

Perhaps the reason it was taken out is because it was to only work when failoverReadonly is false, which seems to make no sense to me. The right way for a load balance option to work would be to require that failoverReadonly be "true", and then round robin load balance read-only statements among all of the listed hosts, while always sending non-read-only statements to the first listed host (the master). This seems fairly simple to implement at the driver level; its absence forces me to implement this same logic at the application level.
