Thanks, Leonid, you're exactly right.  I've got "source cache" (actually,
simply storing a file) and "cacheing proxy" mixed up.

This is the model (store on disk versus in memory) I was trying to implement,
but not being a programmer all I do is "cut-n-paste."  Takes time, and never
works very well anyway.  I'm just going to shut up on this one until I get
time to recompile a stock Lynx.  Very sorry for all the confusion.
