For example here is my config for one of my sites. Look how nice and short it is :-)

I prefer to not use one-liner in blocks as above since it does not allow to
comment out some servers.

It should be proxy_redirect "off".

There is more nice one-liner for the above "if/rewrite" ugly stuff:

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/index.html $uri.html @mongrel;
}

location @mongrel {
proxy_pass http://mongrel-hub;
proxy_set_header ...
}

This is called write only configuration. Everyone prefers to think that
he will never need to think about something again. It's almost always wrong.
