AsyncProxyServlet handles HTTP only.

You would need to write a WebSocket proxy, which we have not done in Jetty.
The idea would be to use a standard WebSocket endpoint on the server;
when that endpoint starts receiving WebSocket frames, you will use a
WebSocket client to forward them to the right backend.

What you describe is basically a simple load balancer.

As such an alternative solution could be using HAProxy.
If choosing the backend is done with a simple logic, perhaps it's a
better solution.
