An example I'd like to do (or mentor someone) is a mod_memcached that 
could serve as the basis of memcached based modules.  It could handle 
all the configuration details, errors, and general heavy lifting of 
memcached.  It would then be very easy to write other modules that had 
hooks into memcached (ie, a mod_cache provider).

Perhaps to abstract it even further, perhaps mod_memcached should be a 
provider for a more generic caching framework.  Not HTTP specific like 
mod_cache, but a general key based cache.  Could be used for a variety 
of things (including an HTTP cache).

typedef struct {
     apr_status_t (*cache_create)(ap_cache_t **instance, apr_table_t 
     apr_status_t (*cache_stats)(ap_cache_t *instance, ap_cache_stats_t 
     apr_status_t (*cache_set)(ap_cache_t *instance, const char *key, 
void *val, apr_size_t len, apr_time_t expires);
	other stuff, like get, replace, etc.
} cache_provider_t;

Just "thinking out loud."

Also, mod_cache should be renamed mod_http_cache
