Actually we're taking another approach. We'll release a bundle of all
our modules, patches that are important but never applied to the
mainstream, and some other 3rd-party modules that we think very
useful, as well as their dependencies into a single tarball, just like
php and qt's distribution tarball. We'll ensure that all those modules
play well together and have been thoroughly tested and are ready for
production use. We'd like to make new releases of this bundle

It'll be named as "ngx_openresty" or as a formal nginx fork named
"nginx plus" or something like that.
