It sounds like that *Should* be mod_cache_small (which will muck up the 
cache namespace).  I'd rather see one longish name like Joe suggested 
than leave "cache" on its own

+1 to the idea in general.  If the cache isn't memory-only based, would 
be nice to see this done in apr-dbd for easy porting of backend storage
