	I agree with getting rid of the if's as much as possible. But  
breaking this #2 rule will break every rails application in existence  
that uses page caching. This rule *must* be supported or else you  
break everyone's apps and expectations and cannot call this a true  
rails nginx config.

	Other then that getting rid of the if's is a good thing.
