https to apache, but http to WAS

I can't find any documentation covering this scenario:

I'm using Apache2 and the WAS plugin.
WAS runs on a separate server than apache.

The WAS server has SSL configured, on port 9443.
This is so you don't need root to start Websphere.

Apache listens on 443.

With the generated plugin-cfg.xml, this scenario won't work:

# Client (HTTPS 443) Apache (HTTPS 9443) WebSphere App server

I get a The host <> on port 443 has not been defined when I hit the web server. If I reconfigure apache to listen on 9443, it works fine.

I could change WAS to listen on 443, but don't like that setup.
Is there a way to change plugin-cfg to understand this "port shift"?

I don't really need https between apache and WAS, it would be better
in terms of perfomance if that traffic is over http.
I can't see a way of getting that to work either.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
