I think the previous analysis regarding Urchin / Google Analytics may be 

Urchin is client-side, it loads urchin.js from 
http://www.googleanalytics.com and reports its findings back to one of 
Googles servers. However, it also hands out 4 cookies to every visitor, 
and those look like they have been placed by the original domain.

So if I understand you correctly (the list and the man-page) , then 
practically nothing on my website would be cached using the default 
configuration, due to (req.request == "GET" && req.http.cookie) ?

Is there any way to ignore *only* the Google-cookies? They're 
consistently named __utma, __utmb, __utmc and __utmz

I think Google Analytics appeals to the same crowd that would benefit 
from using Varnish, so if there's no elegant way of doing it now it 
should be considered for 2.x. Fingers crossed you get the funding, I'd 
love to see it run Wikipedia.
