I agree that seperating the httpfs translator and the caching
mechanism would be worthwhile.  But why not just use an existing
caching proxy such as squid?  Is there some specific functionality
you'd want it to have?  A caching proxy would have to speak http
anyway, not fs, and translating between them is what the httpfs is
