Request for a "no capture" rewrite directive enhancement

Hello Nginx developers,

speaking to Maxim K. over Twitter, suggested this would be the
better place to get an answer to my suggestion.

Basically what I would like to see is the ability to use a rewrite
directive without the need to capture the current URI, which in turn
overwrites $1,$2,$x captures made within a location directive.

Best to explain via an example:

https://gist.github.com/magnetikonline/11364574

As you can see, this works (and works well) but the need to use “set” to
save copies of $1/$2 seems a little wasteful.

Digging through the documentation I can’t seem to find a way of using
rewrite without blowing away/not capturing the current URI.

Thoughts?

What about:

location ~ “^/[a-f0-9]{16}/(css|js)/(.+)” {

expires 30d;
return $scheme://$host/$1/$2? break;
}

?

You could add the 301 code for permanent redirect, see
http://nginx.org/r/return
