An HTTP Cache Proxy in Scala.

Cachet is an HTTP Reverse Cache Proxy written in Scala. It is comparable to Varnish or Rack::Cache. It implements the RFC2616 specification (at this time, only the Expiration model, but the Validation model is forthcoming) obeying Cache-Control headers and the like. It is very configurable so that you can use custom databases (Ehcache and Memcached are supported by default), and custom expiry strategies, and so on. It is designed so that you can layer on things like authentication, authorization, rate limiting, and arbitrary service composition strategies (e.g., Edge-Side Includes)--which is is, I think, something novel in a free reverse proxy.
