We're using ESI on under fairly high load.  ESI  
works well, and we use it to defeat the cache-busting parameters that  
jQuery requests send our way.

I don't have much time to assist you, but I could certainly post some  
of our startup parameters (which took a fair amount of time to figure  
out) and give you reasons why we made the decisions we did.
