Further information from my testing.  It appears that using 
nginx-tcp-proxy-module can only handle websockets on a different port to 
http traffic. :(

This is no use to me. Many of our potential users are commercial and 
lock down outgoing ports to 80 and 443 only.

Does anyone connected with the development of the new software know if 
it will enable nginx to separate websocket and other traffic by domain 

I expected to use a sub-domain rather than location for connections that 
are to be upgraded to websockets. That will start things off properly - 
after that the link is the link, so the sub-domain is not relevant.  (Or 
is my understanding of networking faulty?)
