hmm yes, but would that one prevent any images being on the page?
looks pretty much like ours... in its general idea...
if ( -f $document_root/.maintenance )
set $maintenance 1;
if ( $uri ~ ^/maintenance/ )
set $maintenance 0;
if ( $maintenance )
rewrite (.*) /maintenance/index.html last;
if file exists, serve maintenance. ( with bypass for any other files
in /maintenance ) directory.
