Thanks for the reply. I guess I got confused by myself as I did a minor bump about
a year ago in r370101 for adding further fields to the cache_server_conf struct
defined in mod_cache.h.
As 3rd parties might want to use the provider interface to provide their own storage
providers it might be worth discussing if we *should* make this a public API and should
install it via "make install".
