Won't embedded perl block in this case? I'm not as familiar with it. If it does, this seems like a sub-optimal solution. FastCGI would not block on the nginx side. It's pretty trivial to manage fastcgi processes.

It doesn't have to be fastcgi, it could be a min-http server uwsgi or whatever or is there some restriction that nginx must talk directly to the fifo?
