DrScheme v201 shipped with an unadvertised launcher called "Background
Help Desk".  That's a pure MzScheme application, so no windows are
created and memory usage is lower than with Help Desk itself.  As with
the Help Desk launcher, you can choose what port the server uses.

If you run that on the proxy host, you and others can share the server.
