There are a number of problems in the cache code that need fixing.

  1. The tests... don't test anything.
  2. the encoding/decoding of compressed and utf8 encoded content is confusing, inefficient and undocumented
  3. there's a lot of duplicated code
  4. it shows up the fact that the response has to be able to handle both binary and text (unicode) data
  5. various bits of unloved and useless bits of code that need removing
  6. default response charset needs to be utf-8, not iso-8859-1
