#117: cache invalidation upon update

I propose we close this issue with no action, as the specification now clearly says that when a cache has more than one valid entry, the latest one wins -- making this a non-issue for GET.

<http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p6-cache-14#section-2.2>:

> A cache MUST use the most recent response (as determined by the Date
>    header field) when more than one suitable response is stored.


Henrik?
