// a global cache registry, keyed on IP networks? When the user sets their
// autoproxy config URL to this script, the script will look up their IP
// network and find the best proxy for them.
// ISPs will then register their caches with this service; for example,

interpreted for EACH object. Is this is BIG, it will be SLOW...
