I think that "duplicating" is the elegant way.

I suppose that you could put the four useful lines of your config into an
external file, and "include" that in both your current and new locations.

But I'd consider that "extra level of indirection" to be less elegant.

(I can't think of any requests where your "fastcgi_split_path_info" or
"fastcgi_index" directives will do anything useful.)
