Thank you, this is very interesting. I have long wanted to write a 
proper Apache module that would talk to Tirex directly rather than use 
Tirex' mod-tile socket emulation, but I'm not religious about web 
servers so if Nginx does the job, why not use that.

It will be interesting to see whether the lua code can match the C-based 
mod_tile in terms of throughput on a high-traffic system.

Good job!
