AWStats isn't really a web-application.  It's a collection of
Perl scripts supposed to be run from command line (usually it
run periodically by a cron daemon).  AWStats generates static
html files that can be served by a web server, like nginx.

The Unit Perl module is used to run web applications that
supports generic PSGI specification.  Bugzilla is a famous
example of such application.

The "script" option specifies a path to Perl script with PSGI
compatible interface.  This interface specifies how a Perl
application should receive a request and how it should return
a response.  AWStats doesn't need that.
