Not really used (and not likely to in near future), but here are 
some questions:

1. Any reason why you create hidden location from the module instead 
of accepting name of existing one?  It looks unnatural for me.

2. As far as I see it uses only first path returned by mogilefs.  
Is it planned to support failover?  From my understanding it 
should be simple, something like

    location /mogilefs {
        mogilefs_tracker ...
        mogilefs_pass  /mogilefs_fetch;
    location /mogilefs_fetch {
        error_page 502 503 504 = @failover;
        proxy_pass $mogilefs_path_0;
    location @failover {
        proxy_pass $mogilefs_path_1;
