Map thousands of urls

Hello, we currently use a homegrown apache module, which maps urls to
new domains and urls. For this we use a mysql-lookup. There are O
(10000) entries in this table. Now we want to replace Apache with
nginx (which is currently used as a load balancing proxy to a big
zope cluster für 400+ Sites).
What would be the best way to achieve the same effect with nginx? We
can live with a solution, where the mysql-table is exported once a
night, a new nginx include is written and nginx is reloaded. I think
it would be bad to port the apache module to nginx, as a mysql-lookup
for each request reduces the benefits of nginx.
The lookup can be exact, so we do not need thousands of rewrites via
