Well it turned out to work pretty much out of the box according to
nginx documentation at http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/websocket.html.

I added this (websocket is an upstream configuration).

server {
        server_name ws2.mydomain.com;
        location / {
                proxy_pass http://websocket;
                proxy_http_version 1.1;
                proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
                proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

I might play with having the websocket upstream as a subdirectory, ej:
mydomain.com/ws proxy_pass'ing everying to the upstream websocket.

But that will be once I fix the Authorization thing that's driving me nuts.
