I see your point, I just personally prefer the shorter syntax, and if
you are familiar with the syntax, I think it's quicker to read
proxy_cache_path /data/nginx/cache 1:2 ONE 10m 1h 1g;
How about offering both? You could have a syntax that included the
key/value pairs and one that had the shorter syntax with a specific
ordering. That would mean that admins could choose the version they prefer.
Just an idea.
