Write a module to support other protocol that http

Perhaps you are right. I didn't find a stable structure for
libevent-based program that scales by numbers of CPU. And the way
which libevent uses epoll/kqueue/etc is not quite efficient.
Furthermore, I want to use event-based multi-process model and take
advantage of some nginx's particular feature such as file AIO, so
nginx looks like a good start point. In fact, it is very easy to set
up such a module.

I have written a sample module which serves the Flash Socket/XMLSocket
cross-domain requests. I will post the source if anyone is interested
