How is this better than simply having an external cron job to fetch the
urls?  You have total control of throttling there and it doesn't muck up the
cache code.

A good idea may be to have a "cache store hook" that gets called after a
cache object is stored.  In it, another module could keep track of cached
url's.  This list could be feed to the above cron job.  I know one big web
site that may do it in a similar way...
