thanks for your response.

ok, thanks for that hint.

ok... it`s opensource... everyone can do it, but actually i do not have any experience with
erlang - just read about it :-)

good idea! we will give it a try. but we need a proxy we can control by our application. if
page "blah" has been edited, we should cleanup the proxy-cache for the couchdb-query to get
page "blah".

squid and others do not support an application cache control - right?
