Well, I don't know about mod_mem_cache, but I don't believe this affects 
mod_disk_cache.  mod_disk_cache overwrites the old entry if it is told to 
do so.  It's possible that mod_mem_cache should do the same.

FWIW, your 2 patches are identical.  Not sure if that's what you intended 
or not.  ;-)  -- justin
