Oh yeah, that's what I figured you meant. You should be able to just set
c['buildbotURL'] to the outside-world URL, and then everything buildbot sends
out will derive from that. There's no reason that c['buildbotURL'] needs to
be at all related to the hostname of the buildmaster's system or the port
that the Waterfall is listening on. If your apache rewriting rules map A to
B, then you set c['buildbotURL'] to something related to A, and derive B from
the buildmaster's hostname and the Waterfall port number.

Will that do the job? Or did I misunderstand your needs?
