Huh? Are you sure? Both nginx and libevent are only adding abstraction level 
on top of existing event mechanism in your operating system (kqueue, epoll, 
etc) and in the end your application calls exactly the same syscalls. I'm 
pretty sure that both solutions scale exactly the same.

Yes, you can definitely do that.
But I would say that you're using wrong tools for this job.
