This has been discussed before and it's impossible to implement since
proxying such things does not work over a number of protocols (FCGI,
SCGI). IIRC, the front-end web server likes to send its own 1xx response
before the application has a chance to send its own. The original
discussion was about implement WebDAV, but WebSocket has the same issues.
