Limit connection to specific location

One dirty way to do it would be to use a program to monitor the connections
that access that location and then, when 20 connections in an hour have
occurred, have the config file swapped out and replaced with another that
does not have that location block. There is a way to get Nginx to reread
it's config file without shutting it down.
Have cron restart the whole sequence again every hour. You are using
Linux/Unix I hope.
Like I said, it's a dirty but relatively easy solution.
