Well, in this case, the proxycache should either change the sizelimit
(and the timelimit) to unlimited, and deal with client-requested limits
locally, or consider uncacheable those requests that specify a time or a
size limit.  On the contrary, they should be considered answerable if a
corresponding request is cached, and the limits should be checked locally.
