In the original cache design, the cache was able to cache more than one
variant of a specific URL. If an english page came along, it would cache
the english page. If a french page came along, it would cache the french
page alongside the english page. If a browser was returned cache data,
content negotiation would be used to select the best cached variant.

As a result of the above I am confused why "content negotiation has been
added to mod_cache" - isn't content negotiation built in already?
