Yeah, I do things like that already with an nginx proxy in front of

But my problem is wanting to be able have nice URLs like /user/user_id that
if its a request for text/html returns a file from /priv/user/show.html
while if its a request for application/json it returns the json
representation of the user. Obviously I do that simply in Webmachine. But
I'm not even sure if thats possible to filter out and proxy with nginx this
way or f it is just a stupid thing to do or not.
