Unless of course you enable the appropriate headers; I force expiry
headers for our SSI/XSSI stuff (which picks up some of the CGI output as
well), and even add "Last-Modified" headers to the output of some CGI
scripts (stuff that doesn't really need to be refreshed all that often).
The end result, of course, is that this stuff ends up being cached

Like so many other things, it all comes back to Web developers using "the
right headers"...
