Put Nginx in front of Apache then? Or set up an authentication service and use it from your internal apps?

You'll lose some of the benefits of Nginx at that point, since part of why people like Nginx is how it handles connections, proxying and caching. And the internal apps aren't always mine to maintain, e.g. Apple's Xcode server.

But yeah, there are options in Apache-land, my post was more that nginx could eventually gain those options too :)
