Nginx is a popular option for serving media with Django. At the moment current mod_python documentation only mentions lighttpd, TUX and stripped down Apache as "some good choices". Attached patch adds Nginx to the list.
Full disclosure: I'm not in any way related to Nginx but I use it in many projects. Many Django newcomers seem to know a little to nothing about light media servers and I think Django documentation should mention the most used alternatives -- in which I think Nginx definitely belongs to (at least more than TUX, IMHO).
