mod_socache is a generalise key/value store interface, take a look in
ap_socache.h for the details.

mod_ldap contains an LDAP cache, largely for storing the results of LDAP
comparisons. If mod_ldap doesn't do the caching you need, you could put
mod_socache in front of it.

Some of the mod_socache modules drop in seamlessly to v2.2, some of them
have some hardcoded dependencies on mpms that need to be removed.
