This is the code of the 2.1 version not yet finished (the cache itself
works, the filter, not yet as it needs more things in it).

No, it won't be stored and Jigsaw will only act as a simple proxy in that
case. The only trace will be in the log file. Storing the metadata would
also be against the no-store directive, as it refers to the response and
not the entity body of the response. As headers are part of the response,,
they cannot be cached.
