>   We could also try to eliminate cache busting by
>eliminating the need to measure hits at all.  Suppose we could
>convince web advertisers that they ought to stop paying for hits and
>start paying for _clicks_, with clicks a newly defined measure which
>has a much better correlation to actual ad exposure.
