Does it help to point out you can associate part or all of a vhost's URL space with a protocol using mounts?

There is a CALLBACK mount type that directs the http stuff to the protocol handler named in the origin part of the mount.  In the JSON config it's like this in the mount definition

"origin": "callback://protocol-lws-messageboard",

This gives you a lot more flexibility in terms of supporting multiple things in one vhost at different URLs.
