What I meant was that you modify the ap_read_request() to not crash when 
NULL is passed to it.

As far as I am aware, the request_req only needs certain fields copied 
out of connection_req, not all of which are required.

I wouln't use proxy, as proxy has nothing to do with cache (you may 
build proxy without cache if you like, or cache without proxy).

Rather tack yourself onto mod_cache, so that after a request is 
complete, it can fire off a pass of the cache freshening code while a 
connection_req is still available to create fake requests from.
