You easily could modify this (web.c around line 1279) if so inclined, or do something clever with routing tables perhaps or connection forwarding, but I’m not sure how well the user experience would hold up well with many users simultaneously connecting to the same server process.  It might work, depending on the quantity of users.

It does, thank you.  We will try to play with it a little (in which
case we will try to add 'url' as another command line option).  I
guess we could have multiple fftb instances pointed at different
profiles with different urls to avoid an overloaded server, right?
