This is not my patch (all credits go to Paul G) but just a bit tweaked to 
apply for current (1.2.5) release.

As to answering few of Brads comments:

I think Paul wanted to show just some quick working concept of the feature 
which in real world situations is pretty usefull rather than push the patch 
directly into source. Ram is cheap, but in some cases you still can't deploy 
enough to satisfy all the web-coder needs so instead of cycling the cache 
all the time give some logic and decision possibilities to (client) software 
which data is more important.

It sure  needs love to cope with the current code-style, but the question is 
whether the current developers are fine with the idea/option at all.
