refresh patterns and other nitpicks

Would it be possible to specify refresh_pattern in terms of content-type
rather than in terms of url ?
In other words, intead of saying

        refresh_pattern \.gif 100 30% 10000

I would like to say

        refresh_appern image/gif 100 30% 10000

this way, it also works for CGI scripts returning images.
In the same kind of unimportant requests:

how about indexing the cache based on an hash of the content ?
This way, if a page is accessible via two different URLs, it will be cached
only once (but will of course still miss twice, this seems unavoidable).
