appear to be some situations where Require directives with `CacheQuickHandler off' do not
always take effect. Thus, items that have been cached will be served from the cache even if
access restrictions would otherwise disallow them.

I stumbled across it while doing testing/prep for my talk, but did not investigate it thoroughly.

forgot a graceful...or something...)

When CacheQuickHandler is off, mod_cache acts as a normal content generator, and all normal
request handling - including the require directives - applies.

If there are cases where this doesn’t apply we need to investigate them and either fix them
or properly explain the behaviour.
