I believe that lighttpd has almost the same feature with x-sendfile (I'll let you google it if needed) so it shouldn't be hard to add (3-5 line change) assuming you're willing to test.
I would be more than willing to test if you need me to. If there is a better place to coordinate a test, let me know (AIM, IRC, <insertChatClient>).
