Actually you can still use passenger standalone to have it independent
from the nginx binary (no need to compile it inside). In that case
passenger should not affect on request interruptions.

The reason to use something else can be zero-downtime practice,
if you would go with Unicorn, try to check the ready-to-use config:

You know, it's the same approach as for any Unix 
signals-based binary (master/workers) USR2+QUIT roll out.
