What modules do you have available to work with?

Just using default built modules, there doesn't seem to be a way.

Using non-default modules, you could use:

1) ngx_http_perl + some perl

2) ngx_http_addition + some javascript added to the page to ajax query
and rewrite the page

3) the 3rd-party lua module + some lua

While it's definitely a hack, option #2 seems the best unless you need
to cater to javascript-less clients.

Anyone see a cleaner solution?
