No, Igor isn't trying to implement it.  He's the main Nginx author.  I
think he was just trying to understand what it is people are trying to
implement (and perhaps to understand if it's something he'd want to
accept as part of Nginx proper - but I doubt that will happen, for the
very reasons you outlined earlier).

Manlio is, in fact, the person I've been speaking of.   Your help would
be terrific.  I'd actually meant to approach you about it before, but
didn't know how interested you'd be in a Nginx port.
