Don't know exactly, what nginx can do.

Depends on the number of servers. If you have only 1 server, stick to the  
old framework. It was reintroduced, because the new one produces much  
overhead. If you don't need the extended caching capabilities, you can  
save this overhead.
If you have more than one server, memcache should help. I don't know any  
numbers (would be interesting, if some could tell their experience).

I think situation 4 isn't usable: Old and new framework together ;-)
