Interesting question.  I envisage this working by having consumers 
configure and set up independent cache instances; so if you had 
mod_auth_digest and mod_ssl both using a shmcb provider, you'd get two 
shm segments, for example.

For dbm/shmcb you just get a unique key/value pair cache and don't 
really have to worry about the key namespace.

For memcache, I presume that it's normal to share a particular server 
cluster for caching independent sets of data?  The interface could 
require that the consumer provides a namespace string which gets 
automatically prefixed to the key names in the memcache provider.

Makes sense?
