If you mean ngx_supervisord we have announced recently here, you might
have misunderstood. We don't advocate running nginx under supervisord,
we enable nginx to communicate with supervisord to start/stop backends
according to load.

If you meant something else, I must have missed it, because I don't
recall any other mentions of supervisord on this list.
