[Here I respond to the latest post of Graham, too.]

Right, but actually nginx mod_wsgi *can* execute every WSGI application 
in a *conforming* way (I'm completing full support for WSGI 2.0, and 
after this I will implement WSGI 1.0).

Of course some classes of WSGI applications runs *better* if they don't 
block the nginx process loop too much, so that nginx can serve multiple 
requests at the same time.

It is simply a matter of optimized execution.
