Yet Rich, in the end all our production experience taught that if you
error on the side of correctness even with extensive depth, contrary to
many an assertion, using client side caching has limitations that exceed
many customers expectations for how much bandwidth can be avoided. 
Particularly those who see it as relatively cheap. 

The good news for the marketing folk is that Inktomi and Cisco are going
to have a much slower uptake on that point.
