It would be useful to provide something to override the cache_stoplist or
cache_stoplist_pattern since many sites (mostly newsmagazines and online
newspapers) uses cgis to produce most of their static pages (and the cgi query
is hard-coded in the main html page itself)... such caching would be a big
cpu-time saving for them and a better response from those overloaded servers...
