This breaks the abstraction between the cache providers and the filter streams.
The cache providers should not be in the business of delivering content down to
the next filter - that is the job of mod_cache.  Following this route is
completely anti-thetical to the separation between storing the cache response
and delivery of the content.

As others have mentioned, I would highly recommend that you take a step back
and come up with a design on-list first, run it through the gauntlet on dev@,
and test it before breaking carefully designed abstractions.  -- justin
