I haven't tried it. As you said, it's working now. If it were a matter of
two supported servers--Nginx and Apache--I'd try it. But whenever I read
about it, someone has some obscure problem that doesn't crop up until
later, and I don't want to risk my work's switching to a system that starts
behaving unexpectedly seemingly out of nowhere. That said, I feel like
setting up a FastCGI setup would be easier now that I've gone through UWSGI
for one subdomain and Apache for another, both behind Nginx.
