Agreed. I confess that I sometimes misuse mod_cache to get the performance of odd
commercial web applications fixed. And it is easier to misuse mod_cache and sometimes
to patch it for this misuse then to get commercial vendors fix their sloppy software :-(.

Basicly yes, from my personal point of view. BTW: Can you have a look at the patch I
proposed at
to delete the empty directories (dir_removal_patch.diff) for the cache entries that
get removed? That would be very nice.
