You effectively mean weighting the files depending on amount of hits when
discarding them, correct?

You (I hope) mean while the file is still valid in itself, but the cache
runs out of space, and not due to the document's TTL expiring.

I think this isn't such a bad idea, though I'd want it configurable in a
way. eg: just cache the html files, just cache the pictures, cache
nothing, or cache them all but at a lower priority (as with the above
weighting), compared to normal proxy requests, or a combination..

Effectively a way of distinguishing between a proxy sibling and a proxy

With a little tweaking, it shouldn't be hard to implement this sort of
thing using either existing or slightly modified acl routines.
