Regarding stability problems, Is the issue worse with nginx than with the .htaccess tricks that can be done on apache?
a wrong .htaccess file affects only the website were it is created while the custom directives affect the whole server.

Rockdrala: I understand the snippet is limited to the virtualhost running the snippet. Could you make an example of a snippet that will break stuff outside of the virtualhost (i.e.... dos or resource of xss?)
No, it is not limited to the vhost. Its the same as if you would enter a wrong configuration in the vhost file of apache. A single wrong line will bring down the whole server. Thats why the customdirectives fields are only availabe for the admin and not to the client.

Tere is no corresponding functionality to a.htaccess file in nginx.
