Making Avahi non-blocking wouldn't be difficult. If Avahi is
long-running, you can put it in a separate thread and send information
back to Nginx via writing information to a pipe (since Nginx isn't
thread-safe). I'm not sure how Avahi works, but you might want to use
the a timed event (there are functions available for this in the Nginx
source) as a trigger.
