[csw-maintainers] nginx + passenger

Hi Andy (and maintainers)

I'm a newbee maintainer so apologies in advance for the dumb questions.

I see you maintain nginx - yay. I use nginx with passenger for semi-high
availability ruby on rails hosting (doing both front end load balancing /
failover and the nginx-passenger-ruby instances at the app tier).

What are your thoughts about adding the passenger module to the nginx
package? My first thought is that this creates too many dependencies, ie
ruby, but perhaps it can be only an optional runtime dependency? I'm not
sure what nginx would do if it's compiled with passenger support and you
remove ruby (and the passenger ruby gem).

So, failing that, would it make sense to have a separate package named
nginx+passenger or something? Or is there no room for such things with the
opencsw naming convention?

Or do you think this falls in to the basked of 'sorry opencsw can't help
