I've recently posted here a patch that will allow nginx to know 
when request is completed even if backend server wasn't closed 
connection.  The patch is currently waiting for Igor's review.

There are two things left for http persistent connections support: 
chunked encoding (should be relatively easy with the mentioned 
patch) and saving connections for later use instead of closing 
them (relatively easy as is).
