Slightly off subject, but in my testing, mod_disk_cache is much faster 
than mod_mem_cache.  Thanks to sendifle!

I was thinking about scenarios were each cache had there local cache 
(disk, mem, whatever) with memcache behind it.  That way each "object" 
only has to be generated once for the entire "farm."  This would be an 
easy way to have a distributed cache.

Also, the squid type htcp (or icp) could be a failback for the local 
cache as well without mucking up all the proxy and cache code.
