that's a real bad thing to do. We don't cache any of, because
their 'make your own homepage' includes personal details; and the
headers allow it to be cached by an HTTP/1.0 cache for half an hour.

They send the same 'cache-control: private' headers as,
but unfortunately they're 1.1 headers being sent in a 1.0 response
to a 1.0 request, and they include an Expires: header giving a life time
of 30 minutes (intended to be the time that the browser keeps the document,
but it doesn't quite get treated like that).
