Ok, up to here we are talking about the same :) Adding the 
sourceresolver and sources to the above example and let the sources 
return the urls should be easy. That's more or less what you do today.

Ah, no no, I'm not saying this :) There should only be one file generator.
Let's use the above example: you setup the pipeline as shown above and 
then do a:
Pipeline cachingPipeline = new CachingPipeline(pipeline);

Et voila! That's all you have to do.

Now, as I answered to Ralphs mail, I don't know if this is possible or 
how to do it right now. So it might turn out that it's not or it's not 
worth doing it.

The pipeline writer needs to know how uri resolving works. He needs to 
know what input values are allowed, what relative values mean etc.

But I will turn around the questions :) What caching do you need? The 
ultra complex caching we currently have which can cache partial 
pipelines? Or just the result of a pipeline?
