I agree that there are many situation where it does not make sense to cache things under access
control, but there are ones where it makes sense.

e.g. If you create a forward proxy with httpd that should use caching and that only
a limited number of clients on your LAN should be able to use.

So I agree with Paul that it should be configurable.
