mod_cgi for nginx - anyone?

Igor, et al:

Is there a reason that there has not been an attempt to directly call
CGI programs (compiled CGI, perl CGI, whatever) in nginx?

I would love to take out proxying to apache if I could.

Is there a blocking nature in CGI or something else that makes it
impossible to function, or has there been no interest? I have a
handful of apps I have to support (bugzilla, mailman, etc.) that I
have to proxy to apache right now.

I'd be willing to put some money down for it, too. (and mod_svn !)
