List of Nginx variables?

if you grep -r ngx_string nginx-codebase you get most or all of the
variables (and some other stuff) - since it is used as the function to
prepare or allocate the memory or something for each string...

it'd be a place to start. i guess cross reference it against the known
list on the wiki, and then ask to clarify any other missing ones; then
ask igor to inform us all of new variables or parameters on each
release and someone gets those into the wiki too...

For instance there are some gzip variables that show compression rates or something like that which I've seen others reference in examples but not documented that I could find, so naturally I wondered what else was available but not documented.
