We considered that some time ago, wrote some patches, ended up proxying
to Apache everything except a well-defined set of static file extensions
(and 404s for rewrites).
Not being fully Apache-compatible frustrates your users as they have to
learn a new syntax and -- this is the major problem -- cannot use
ready-made apps with bundled .htaccess files. By the time you end up
mostly compatible, you will have implemented half of Apache anyway.
