While I think this is a good idea, I'd like to consider renaming this
particular directive as I think the name is really confusing.  My concern is
that CacheIgnoreCacheControl only refers to the request's Cache-Control not
the origin response's Cache-Control header.  But, I like that separation
because having it refer to both is too coarse-grained, I think.

But, I don't have any real ideas for what an alternative name is.  -- justin
