It does not make sense to come up with a new design and not try to
make it work well (ideally very well) with caching proxy servers.
That said, correct me if I am wrong, but if your server is using SSL
isn't it impossible for a proxy to ever cache anything? I was looking
into this recently for a corporate customer and this seemed like an
absolute dead-end because of SSL.
