Nginx feature request

Thanks for the suggestion.
The solution you offer seems workable for a smaller number of files, but I'm not sure how such a cron job would scale with lots of files (potentially thousands) added and deleted on a regular basis. Cron jobs also require cpu time and harddisk access - even more so if I'd want a finer resolution than 5 minutes.
I'd rather rely entirely on the filesystem itself. Just create a file with the appropriate mtime (with a resolution of seconds rather than minutes) and then forget about it - as nginx could take care of the rest. Replicating / scaling would also be very straightforward.
Well, just an idea. Is probably not very useful for anyone else, so I don't expect much support for my feature request :) Will probably end up implementing it myself.
