That will be great.

I still think Nginx should have plain C equivalents to Apache's
ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain and ProxyPassReverseCookiePath. It's a
problem that comes up fairly often when proxying legacy servers.

Nginx could even do it by default, when there is a proxy_pass with a
path component (which means: "process the request host and path", as
opposed to a proxy_pass without trailing slash, which means "pass the
request unprocessed")

What do you think?
