NGINX CSS optimizer module?

Hi all,

We have been using NGINX for a year now with great results, so thanks to
everyone who has made this project so successful!

I am looking for a feature which I hope NGINX supports, and that is
optimization of serving CSS files, specifically around minimizing and
resolving @import statements server side.

For instance, to better manage the hundreds of css files we have, we
started breaking them up and using the @import directive. Obviously this
slows things down quite a bit because the browser has to make lots of
additional requests.

I am looking for a way to have NGINX automatically resolve all @imports so
when it servers a CSS file so it has no dependencies.

Any feedback would be much appreciated!
