 It is not related to tilecache.org.  Sorry if you are confused.

At first, I'm intended to build a cache server for tile CDN, so I named it 'tilecache' on our repository.
And then, extend it as tile server recipe.
After a month, there are over 300 lines of tirex driver code.

A renaming  is one of issues for the project.
Do you have any suggestion?

FYI: It has three types of snippets.

First is a core lua code to connect and drive tirex from nginx.

Second is a configuration for OSM japan tile server
  and several typical examples of Nginx configuration using core components.

Third one is  an utility script to import planet data, update and expire tiles.
