I have reduced the timeout to 30s now. If somebody thinks this is a bad
idea, please let me know.

If you want to experiment with nginx, please go ahead. I wouldn't
use it in front of Apache, but in stead. Notice that pypi has it's
own IP address now, so you could restrict this nginx usage to
pypi if you wanted to. Please use Debian packages where possible.
