Yep, full ack.

I think that you are right in this way, I think also that a ajp module
in nginx will be nice, however the way you go with a nginx => nginx with
mod_wsgi looks to me simlar ;-) only the protocol is http.

Neverless I thank you that you start to work on wsgi bevor I start on
ajp so I can learn a lot during your implementation.

No probs, I will see how *easy* a ajp parser will be ;-))
