Hi Benoit,

One of the TODO items for Webmachine right now is to improve
dispatching a bit, including host-based dispatch and also probably
incorporating Paul's specificity-based dispatch ordering somehow.

The current idea for host-based dispatching is that you could make a
dispatch rule of the form:

{host, pathspec, resource, args}

instead of the usual

{pathspec, resource, args}

and that dispatch rule would only match if the Host header matches the
host term in the rule.  The existing 3-element dispatch rules would
match any Host header, thus maintaining backward compatibility.

Hopefully we'll get to this soon.  In the meantime, of course, patches
are always welcomed.

-Justin
