Yeah, Apache/mod_proxy as a caching reverse proxy is even easier (it
looks like a normal server but actually forwards the requests back to
some other server when necessary).

Both of these are only ever going to cache content (i.e. GET requests);
PROPFIND requests are not cacheable, so every checkout is still going to
have to go back to the origin server (indirectly).
