One more question:

* What proxies, if any, run in front?  Either to distribute
  load between machines, handle failover for a dead machine, to serve
  static files, etc...

_None_ of these are proxied behind nginx.  They only need a load
balancer to distribute load between multiple machines and to handle
failover if a box goes down.

They either use haproxy or a similar, but overpriced black-box[1].  They
either do pass-through (Layer 4, TCP-only) or only buffer (and possibly
rewrite) HTTP headers (Layer 7).  I forget which apps used which, but
Rainbows! works great in all of those configurations.

[1] not my decision to use it, of course :)
