I'm still pretty new to Nginx, but I know that it serves static files very well. For this reason I want to use Nginx together with TileStache as a map server.

TileStache has got a WSGI application that should work well with Nginx's uWSGI module (haven't tested yet). The map tiles should be cached as static PNG files that could be delivered directly to the user, I'm not sure how though.

How far have I come to achieve this, or have I taken the wrong path?

I was wrong. Nginx supports the protocol, but doesn't seem to have its own application. Now I'm using Gunicorn as a middleman, and it works very well.
