I'm planning to add an experimental HTTP cache implementation to WebKit (
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30322). The main motivations are:

- Improving performance by bringing the cache closer. For example we can
serialize WebKit response objects directly instead of converting to/from
platform types.
- Making future innovation around caching easier. Closer coordination
between cache and WebKit opens new optimization possibilities.

The cache lives in the network process. Most of the code is cross-platform.
The storage backend uses libdispatch IO though it wouldn't be hard to add a
generic posix one too.

The code will be behind NETWORK_CACHE feature flag.
