Hi guys,

I did a little research on how Nginx supports Ruby/Rails and if I'm
right, you can only do proxy or FastCGI to make it working. So I
thought... There's this mod_wsgi module for Python apps which I have
recently used and I find it really great. Why not do the same for
Ruby/Rails? I'm a CS student, I'm looking for a subject for my masters
thesis and I thought that maybe I could create such module. I have
some questions:

1) Do you think that making mod_ruby/mod_rack/mod_rails is a good idea?
2) Do you know if someone is already working on something like that?
3) Do you think it would be useful?
4) Would you/your friends/collegues be happy if you had such a module
for Nginx? :)
