NginxHttpSecureLinkModule with TTL Module?

Hello all,

I know that a patch for the NginxHttpSecureLinkModule currently exists 
which brings TTL support. The patch is for 0.7.59 and doesn't seem to 
work with the latest version. Is there any chance that this 
functionallity will be built into the NginxHttpSecureLinkModule 
directly, or is anybody planning on releasing a module similar to 
NginxHttpSecureLinkModule with this support?

I'm sure for most people out there, TTL support is critical to creating 
secure links. This would duplicate the functionally that Amazon S3 
provides with their "expiring" links.

Second question, as I've seen this go both ways in testing - does the 
module support variables when defining the secure_link_secret? This 
would be necessary if one wanted to add the IP address of the client to 
the secret, to ensure the link would only work for the given client. 
Couple that with TTL, and you have a *very* powerful link protection 
system: secure_link_secret   secret_word$remote_addr;
