Following this post on using Lua to increase nginx’s flexibility and in reducing load on the web stack I am curious to know how people are using Lua to enhance nginx’s capability.

Are there any notable hacks, optimizations & observations using Lua? Hacks that people have used to discover capability with Nginx that would otherwise be complicated/impossible with a webserver or reverse proxy?
