Not a "really big" problem, since nginx can use multiple worker processes.
Of course mod_wsgi *should* not be used in the "main" http server, but
it should be used "standalone", as a replacement for a "builtin" server
and behind another nginx proxy if possible.
With Python this is very effective, since all Python http servers are
written in pure Python and use a thread based model.
With PHP the builtin server is written in C, and uses a prefork model
(if I'm right) so I don't know is a nginx mod_php is worth the effort.
