Is that a full stop at the end of that sentence?  :-)

I presume you mean "no point using a reverse-proxy if you're thinking
that's going to save apache from having to continually re-apply the
filter." - yes?

I've seen large sites that use commercial file caches as reverse proxies
to reduce the load on apache content servers - not the load of applying
filters and whatnot - just the load of having to actually put the
content on the cable.

Is this a sane thing to do?
