Using nginx with OpenGroupware Coils

OpenGrouwpare Coils running as an unprivileged user doesn't have the ability to open privileged ports (ports below 1024, such as 25 [smtp], 80 [http], and 443 [https]). At this time the OpenGroupware Coils HTTP component also does not support TLS/SSL. The result of this is that OpenGroupware is almost always run behind some kind of the HTTP reverse proxy which will handle those more mechanical parts of the HTTP protocol. And today's premier reverse proxy is nginx.
