You can try out ngx_srcache + ngx_memc to do such caching.

Sure, see these two slide pages for an example:

See above.

If ngx_srcache is used, nginx is doing caching completely.

If you want your python app to access memcached as well, the
recommended approach is to pass the nginx variable holding the hashed
memcached upstream name back to your fastcgi app.

When caching does not even reach your python app, your server will
easily reach 10k ~ 20k req/sec for a simple machine when a cache hit
happens ;)
