That's what I'm doing on the Apache side of things to actually wipe out 
the content of the cache after one day....

But now I kinda understand why JCS crashed on me after 6/8 hours being 
put on live... It's a grow-only mechanism, and given that I probably 
restart Cocoon on live once every 3/4 weeks (maybe longer) and we have 
something like 1.5 million valid URLs (150.000 articles on 11 sites), I 
can see why the baby can't handle it...

Time to write some code, then...
