When your data is small enough to be hold in RAM, just use ngx_lua as
the glue. Use

    lua_need_request_body on in nginx.conf
       + client_body_in_single_buffer on in nginx.conf
       + ngx.var.request_body + ngx.decode_base64() +
ngx.location.capture() in Lua
       + ngx_redis2 in nginx.conf

Then it'll no longer block on disk operations because no disk
operations will be involved.
