| the PURGE request. So sending a PURGE request to 127.0.0.1:8080 with the 
| caching
| virtual host being 'cachehost' will look like:
| 
| PURGE http://cachehost/someuri HTTP/1.1
| ....

Isn't it better to do it as a uri - say - /cache-control - hosted on the proxy?
so the above would look like

POST /cache-control?purge

http://cachehost/someuri1
http://cachehost/someuri2
http://cachehost/someuri3


the advantage is that standard http clients like wget can be used to purge a
number of URLs (or based on wild cards) and it does not use any non-rfc methods.
