Unfortunately, this won't work even if implemented properly.  Most 
serious issue is that there should be ABI compatibility maintained 
and checked, this is not currently the case even within single 
unmodified nginx release: there are configure arguments which 
change layout of various internal structures.

Other problems include e.g. proper handling of reloads.
