(or almost use it in combination with mogilefs!)

mod_mogilefs would be ideal as it wouldn't require fastcgi/php or any
other scripting level language. but nginx would have to talk to a
tracker and resolve the URL to a key.

however, if X-Accel-Redirect: accepts another http:// URL that would
meet 99% of the need for mogilefs integration. i don't believe it does
right now. could that be implemented easily?
