On note about the file cache: Unfortunately the file cache manager is not very 
good. Especially the garbage collector is brain dead. the plan is to use some 
of the new features in HTTP/1.1 in order to implement a persistent file cache 
with both a private and a shared part.

I have written up a small note on some of the things that I had in mind at:

but it still needs a lot of work.
