No, I don't mean many names for the same port. (I don't think that is
even possible...)

What I mean is that the proc server, AIUI, has a distinct port for each
process. The proxy would need send rights for the ports of all processes
it proxies; and whenever a process sends a request to the proxy, the
proxy needs to forward it to the real proc on the right port.

Of course that means that the proxy somehow needs to obtain the
per-process ports from the proc server. I don't know enough about proc,
so I can't tell how this needs to be done exactly. It's probably not
trivial, and certainly requires a full understanding of the proc
