I have no clue on the envvar-stuff, so I don't think I'm qualified to 
have an opinion. CacheIgnoreCacheControl et al are config directives 
currently and I have the gut feeling that they should all either be 
envvar-thingies or config directives, and that starting to mix stuff 
will only end in confusion and despair ;)

I prefer a config-option that I can set serverwide without too much 
fuss since we want this behaviour on all files. If this can also be 
accomplished with envvar-stuff then sure.

One way might be to do a config directive for now, and deal with the 
envvar-stuff separately.

Related, this config option might also be of interest for 
mod_disk_cache to enable similar optimizations. What would the "good" 
way be to accomplish this?
