I think this behaviour should be made based on a new parameter for the
module, defaulting to the current behavior -- using the http/websocket
proxy is not a common scenario. Also, I am not sure how valid is to
expect switching to websocket connection without demanding it. Plus, in
this way the upgrade to newer version is not breaking exiting configs.
