Peter, w3c already offers this, as standard, on port 6667.

I’ve already used Opera Unite anew, to host a public profile, a webserver running in the browser, and setup a web proxy. As I learn, the proxy will use the apache webserver running in Cygwin process on Windows 2008 EE, on the same host as the browser – so public resources are all “open source”. Slowly, Ill try to turn on https flows (including SSL MITM or CONNECT https) in all this.
