If I recall correctly, there were MANY conditions in mod_cache that
prevented caching (like checking for a POST method, no-store, no-cache,
auth, GET args, private, public, must-revalidate, maxage, etc.).

My idea was to have one directive, with an option for each of them,
including the conditions that are already supported, plus two special
options - one that represents the empty set of options, and one that
turns on all of the options.
