that makes it look like i can pass $request_uri as SCRIPT_NAME. however, while drupal does get the right site settings.php file doing that, for some reason it cant figure out which page its on. it either generates a 404 or only shows the home page no matter what uri i give it in a web browser.

while i do take the point that there are other ways of making drupal do what i want with and unpatched nginx, that doesnt mean other things couldnt make good use of a $location variable.
