I should also mention that the proxy is at best being announced as an
initial alpha release with the rest of a8.  The proxy is not as stable as
the rest of Apache 2.0, so if the cache doesn't work very well we are
okay.  Right now, we are proxy'ing HTTP requests, and Chuck thinks he
might be able to get PASV FTP working tonight.  The cache for all of this
will come in time.  When the proxy part of the cache is done, we will also
be able to quickly replace mod_file_cache with a cache module.  If I
thought the cache module was ready for prime-time, it would have gone in
modules/standard, and I would have removed mod_file_cache.c.  :-)
