Yeah, right! How ? Hey, you are using the Monty Python argument style.
Can you point to even one requirement of HTTP that my_cache_provider
wont meet ?

blah, blah.. you essentially said: "I don't want a simpler interface,
I think the current mess is more elegant."

I have shown you that I can even wrap your messy cache_provider hooks
into a much simpler one, how can anything else be more elegant ?
