I tried to distinguish the proxy and the upstream module. Is the
upstream module a raw tcp connection level module, that sends and
returns packets to backends while the proxy module actually understands
HTTP and is able to look for a host header and similar?
If that's right, then we definetely have to extend the proxy module for
our use case.
