anything is possible. In a 'standard' nginx configuration, you would
typically have all the config related to s specific site in one
file. However, that is just convention, not a rule.

Many things are possible. However, I'm trying very hard not to be overly
distracted by this issue, which I think is fairly insignificant. My
objective is to do as little as possible at this time because I want to
get back to cleanup of worg. It is quite possible that work will also
have some influence on the rest of the org web space. 

If you or others want to look at the 404 page issue, please do so. For
right now, I'll just do a basic 404 page which Bastien can install
easily. If you or others come up with something more sophisticated, it
can be used to replace the simple basic version, otherwise we can
revisit this later if necessary.
