The embedded perl module (see [1]) is available in nginx since its 
introduction in nginx 0.3.21 and works fine.

An attempt of Alexandr Gomoliako to add various features to the 
embedded perl module had major problems from our (nginx team) 
point of view, see the thread linked by Valentin.  Instead of 
trying to understand and fix the problems pointed out, Alexandr 
chose to maintain his own fork.  As far as I understand, the fork 
is mostly dead now.
