They have the the same format, but cache.convert contains cache hits (objects
returned from the disk/memory cache), whereas proxy.convert contains cache
misses (objects retrieved directly from the remote site).

Those files can be used by any logfile analysis program that does hit/miss
analysis and needs logs in common log format.

The names are simply a historical holdover from the CERN httpd proxy server
log names (cache-log and proxy-log, if I recall correctly).
