My first impression was that why not put this in a separate
gem, say yahns-apps or so? I am not saying we should do
this, just curious why? Easier to maintain and distribute?

I am even more curious to this. Nginx is pretty accessible already,
(perhaps not on Windows though?) and it would surely be more
performant than Ruby. Or is it because we might want to make it
not only a reverse proxy, extending it with Rack middleware?
If so, then we probably don't want this directive:

    app(:proxy_pass)

but just treat it as a Rack application? Or we might want to define
another middleware, say proxy_pass's middleware, which would
be slightly different than the rack ones? If so I think it makes a lot
of sense to have app(:proxy_pass).

Cheers,
