FWLB with Proxy firewalls/Secure Computing Sidewinders

Does Cisco produce anything that would help with best practices when load-balancing with proxy firewalls.  I spent some time playing with asymetrical load-balancing and it seemed to work great with filter-based firewalls, but I am not sure that this would work the same with a proxy based firewall.  In general the Sidewinders don't like any failure scenarios even with light traffic with symetrical configurations.  Asymetrical doesn't seem to work at all.

Our set up is (logical):

6509 6509

ACE ACE A/S

FW FW Active Stand-Alone (connected physically to the 6509s)

ACE ACE A/S

6509 6509

reverse-sticky?

predictor?
