1. I agree that outputs of CGI scripts *may* be cached - so maybe squid
has to be modified to examine the HTTP headers of pages from CGI scripts,

2. From the cache point of view: it would be nice if web sites - that use
CGI scripts which produce cacheable outputs - sent also *Expires* header
(e.g. it is possible with nph CGI scripts).
