Double check first whether this is allowed by RFC2616 - remember that 
the Apache mod_proxy is very unlikely to be the only proxy in the chain, 
so even if mod_proxy takes cookies into account, other caches in the 
chain might not.

Also, it is unlikely that changes will be made to the v1.3 tree code, it 
is more likely that such a feature might be found in the mod_cache 
modules of Apache v2.0.

The original design of mod_cache allowed for the caching of different 
variants of the same URL (different variants might be different 
languages of the same page, etc), though I am not sure if that feature 
currently works. If it does, that would be what you need.
