Any caching more or less is similar with others, but none of
them is the same with another :-p.  Your question is difficult to answer
without knowing your purpose why you want to know about it.
Caching consists of some basic functions including:
 - interpreting the procedure of an application protocol
 - recognizing the syntax of data (message) transmitted on the protocol
 - recognizing which part of data can be cached with which identifier (key)
 - expiration of obsolete data, mutual exclusion on update, and so on.
In general, all of these depend on application protocols.  But we can
implement them on a common set of mechanisms for cache, and I'm trying
to do so in DeleGate...
