hi jan,

it`s a distributed system and only files like images, pdf are handled
through the filesystem. caching should be done by a single independent
server. another point is that we cache parts of a html-page -> some parts
are generated dynamically. doing a request to the file-system for each part
is not performant :-)

i`d like to get all cached parts with one request. eg: html-page /blub.html
ist called. now, there can be 2 cases:

1. total page has been cached
2. only parts have been cached

i want to get all information with one request. storing it in couchdb would
make it possible to store it all in one document - correct?
	full_html: null or html,
	parts: {

of course, i can store json in a file in the filesystem, but will i be able
to scale my caching-system?

greets sven
