This was one of the basic design goals of the new cache, but the code 
for it was never written.

It was logged as a bug against the original v1.3 proxy cache, which 
suffered from thundering herd when cache entries expired.

At some point soon when my mailbox is a little less full and I have a 
week or two spare, I plan to fix this problem if nobody beats me to it :)
