Recently a lot of my development has been with Dancer and the preferred stack is typically something like Nginx, Plack and Starman.  After listening to a few people looking for alternatives to Apache and reluctancy to use Nginx with FastCGI with Interchange.  I wondered would it be possible to run Interchange 5 in a NPS stack.  I started researching existing modules and came across Plack::App::CGIBin written by Tatsuhiko Miyagawa.  To my delight my first test with the example in the POD had Interchange with a c compiled cgi-file running on Plack!

Yes this does seem amazing, to confirm I added the strace output to my gist for review.
