This guy will do it -->

LWS_VISIBLE LWS_EXTERN const struct libwebsocket_protocols * 

libwebsockets_get_protocol(struct libwebsocket *wsi);

Right, the headers for lws are split into two, one private and one for 
user code that you know.  The private one has all the changeable struct 
definitions and keeps the confusing guts out of sight.
