protobuf-nginx (nginx code generator for protocol buffers messages)

I've written a Google Protocol Buffers code generator for nginx module
developers interested in using protobuf messages within nginx natively.
The project is on Github here:

The gives more details, but the intent is to generate code that
follows the "nginx way", i.e. using nginx data types such as ngx_str_t,
ngx_array_t, and ngx_rbtree_t; memory pools; and overall programming style.

I have some more work to do on it, but at this point the generated code is
fully functional.  I'd be interested to hear any feedback from module
developers who have considered using protobuf in nginx.
