Now "if" is like some location that has some static configuration. It
will be changed: no static directives inside "if". Only settings, flow
control, and some special directives.

No "rewrite" directives.

I hope now its more clear.

I think it is to make the if more useable and to remove the rewrite

I think also that the 'http_script_module' is not like a script language
more like a description language how the *http-message* should flow thru
nginx, after I reanalyze and rethink, maybe I'am wrong.

Sorry but this I don't know.
What I assume is that:

1.) use another, but smaller language. to make some small tasks which is
    not possible with the mod_perl.
2.) just add more dynamic things into nginx for more flexibility.
3.) ???

I will dig deeper into this issue.
