-0 right now on beta, here's my thinking;

Apache 2.0 didn't (originally) deliver a functioning cache 
or proxy.  That was the #1 reason for folks to 'choose' to 
hang onto 1.3 when the 2.0 server went out the door.

Delivering Beta 1 with a fully functioning cache and proxy
would go a huge ways in giving beta testers (as opposed to
dev alpha hackers) some strong faith in the 2.2 release.

Because cache and proxy were the #1 hurdle last time around,
shipping Beta 1 with bugs in either module would not provide
much street credibility.
