Video streaming feature request

I think Nginx misses a small feature when used as a video
caching proxy. MP4 files have a MOOV atom on top - so it
would be great to tell a caching proxy to throttle the bandwidth
only after sending the MOOV atom (the MOOV atom should be
shipped as fast as possible).

An nginx server can use "limit_rate_after <moov-atom-size>" -
but can't tell a caching proxy to do so.

It would be great if "X-Accel-Limit-Rate" could support an optional
second parameter: "limit-rate-after", e.g.:

	X-Accel-Limit-Rate: <limit-rate> <limit-rate-after>

A small patch should be attached.
Thanks a lot
