I should have been more specific. I'm thinking mono will pass all
requests for both domains to a lighttpd server, which in turn will
sort the requests to your various boxen.
Of course the lighttpd server would need a criterion on which to
decide whether the original request was destined to server A or server
B, and I'm not sure if any such criterion would survive mono's NAT.
Sorry, maybe it's a little late here to be tossing out ideas.
