Just to throw something out here, I would like to see mod_ssl/tls,
whatever it's called, not implement caching at all.  Cache logic is all
relatively similar, even if some of the details change.  We have a very
small prototype of a mod_cache in experimemntal, that was originally
designed as a filter to cache web pages.  With a bit of work, a small
function could be added to put generic caching in.  This would allow
mod_ssl/tls to take advantage of any back-end that has been written for
