Yeah so what it does is mess with the variables to implicitly create a
separate host. Which will work in the simple case, fail if there are more than
one doing the same trick with the same port.
That does not really change the fact that URL callbacks are not supposed to
block though. AFAICT, that is where the bug is, it's been there since
switching from HTTPd stream to HTTPd callbacks, and it completely wrecks the
logic of the poll loop.
