+1 . i already did this patch and it work weel in production use. But we 
don't use mod_dir.
We discussed here about this many times, and nobody found a real problem 
when caching / ending url. Maybe it's time to do the patch =)

In case some people would still not cache the /, i did a patch with a 
directive CacheSlashEndingUrl On/Off.
If someone is interested by, let me say.
