I agree, but as a newcomer haven't wanted to mark things WONTFIX
because hey, someone else MIGHTFIX!  There are some technical
problems with the ESI solution IMVHO - it requires the back end
system to know what urls are associate with each record in the

I'm working on a similar capability though for externally invalidated
cache items.  I'm not far enough in, but what I'm looking at could
provide hooks for an updated version of this ESI scheme as an alternative
