The Nginx GeoIP module is based on the original Geo module, the difference being that it is not being controlled by a piece of config, but makes use of the MaxMind GeoIP binary API natively. It provides for fast lookups from both the binary GeoLite and GeoIP Country databases available from MaxMind. One of the advantages to use the binary databases and API is getting automated updates from MaxMind through the geoipupdate utility. This is also the reason why SPIL GAMES wrote this module. http://wiki.codemongers.com/NginxHttpGeoIPModule

It would be easy to turn this into a patch for the existing Geo module by the way. But that would only make sense if Igor wanted to integrate this into the main Nginx distribution.
