[Catalyst] mod_proxy and https

If I have read the archives correctly, the only way to use http and
https to the front end it to have 2 backend servers, once running
http, the other forced to https, otherwise uri_for will not return
the correct paths to the front end on the https ports.
Is this still the case? Will the next version of Catalyst::Runtime
help with only having one backend instance (I can see having 2
backend instances may be harder to manage, esp. when sharing session
data between them - more hoops to jump through).
I have thought about overriding uri_for so all paths are returned to
the browser as https. I was surprised I couldn't find a sub similar
to uri_for that didn't include the uri type and server name ('http://
server/status' vs '/status') so the original connection type is
continued, but not sure what the implications of this might be (just
thought of if, not fully thought it through yet).
