An end-user should never see these keys, the only place they are visible
to any user is the semi-binary mod_disk_cache files. An administrator
would have to really know what they're doing to find them, or be using
htcacheadmin - once I finish that, and if it gets accepted.

The "?" isn't me, that's current mod_cache behaviour, so I left it

It doesn't have any significance except for avoiding an extra condition.
r->args is part of the key aswell, it just happens to have been NULL in
those examples.

Either way, doing as you suggest is trivial, but is there really a point
adding more conditions? Any tool which does inspect the cache files can
clean it up for presentation to the administrator.
