The SKS software does not include a Host: header on the POSTs to
/pks/hashquery so you're currently only pulling keys, not able to
receive them by pushes.

Hostnames required on port 80 is reasonable.  On port 11371, you need to
ensure that the default vhost for no-hostname is mapped to the SKS

My approach is to pass everything on port 11371 to the SKS backend,
always, and on other ports (80, 443) to pass everything under /pks/ to
the backend.
