Actually; that is a good point; If I would add a 'virtual' cache trace in
the header (and the log) it would make things a _lot_ more obvious for the
developer; (i..e that the build in cache is interacting with his/her CGI) 
plus it would be easy to do the type of shift-reload type of virtual cache
overriding. That, plus a large warning in the docs could make this
feasible thing to be used by third parties.

Hmm, neat. Lets give that a spin.
