FastCGI Authorizers with nginx

According to the specification FastCGI supports responders, filters and
authorizers. Nginx surely supports responders. I’m not sure, if it
supports filters, but it definitely doesn’t support authorizers. Is
there a architectural reason behind it, was it simply forgotten, or
wasn’t it requested?
We are interested in this feature! Unfortunately we don’t have any C
knowledge. FastCGI authorizers are necessary if you want to use nginx
together with shibboleth.

FastCGI authorizers aren’t supported (as well as filters), only
responders.

You may achieve similar effect by using auth request module, see
