Just a reverse proxy.

For the content filter I think you mean soemthing like the ProxyPass and 
ProxyMatch of httpd, do you? If yes some filtering would be nice.

Caching is interesting but not a requirement for a reverse proxy (you 
can have the static resource locally and server them locally).

The use would be to front-end TC or cluster of TC. httpd does that but 
the code is in C and it is a lot of work to have JAVA based 
administration (JMX for example). The proxy should support HTTP and 
HTTPS and could support AJP if you want.
