My guess is that it would if it were told to use a proxy for ws.

Keep in mind that when I say proxy, I do not mean to include "reverse proxy".
A reverse proxy of websockets is just an implementation of websockets or
a tunnel.  I consider both to be pretty dangerous and better done in
a special-purpose server rather than as a child of Apache httpd.
