I would be potentially interested in implementing this as we move
closer to having FastCGI/SCGI support (which is a bit of a ways away
due to memory management strategies). Personally, I'm more interested
in nginx's X-Accel-Redirect than X-Sendfile, but supporting either
isn't too difficult. Remind me of this in a few months.
