xargs -P and load balancers

Hi all.

If I use xargs -P for parallel excution of commands distributed
by ssh over several machines, the start-up by xargs is too
fast (yes, not too slow :-) ) so that the load balancer
(that selects the best node for the current ssh job) will not
catch up with the newly started processes.
Therefore the processes are badly distributed.

A solution would be be an xargs option like
which waits <SECS> seconds before starting a new parallel job.

How can this be achieved currently?
