The problem is that I don't know how. I just read the information in
the documentation 
how to use it to cache credentials.

I wrote my own caching algorithms for my module, but learned that Apache
provides this funtionality already. Or at least part of it - as in user caching. 
That's why I thought of getting rid of my own caching (which caches users and group
info) and make use of already available functionality.
Why reinvent the wheel?

I just can't figure out how to cache group info.

My module is an authnz module, but I couldn't find an authz_socache variant.
Is there something like that? Are there any examples?

Maybe this is off topic here, but I'd appreciate any pointers.
