Not out of line at all.  In theory, this should be a very slick way of
mirroring a site.  A request comes to you for the front page, you
query the Apache site for it, and then return it - the next request
which comes in gets the cached copy.  No worrying about cgi
configurations, etc.  The 24 hour DefaultExpire I've set on
www.apache.org content should mean that the oldest content gets is 24
hours.  We can tune that depending on how well it works, or how close
we are to a major release, etc.
