We originally started on patch.spdy-44.txt and rebuilt nginx on each
successive patch release. Currently we are using nginx-1.3.3 with
patch.spdy-47.txt and openssl-1.0.1c on the live servers.

The client load time differences were calculated moving from https to
https-spdy. This was not a purely scientific study though as the
hardware did not change, but we did move the Nginx daemon to Freebsd 9
from Ubuntu Linux 12.04.

Still we are very happy with the improvements without changing any html code.
