thanks for the hint. unfortunately, not quite what I want. I want 
varnish to keep the objects very long, so that it not has to ask the 
backend to often. therefore, it's important that the cache keeps 
growing, instead of vanishing once in a while.

and I don't wan't upstream caches or browsers to cache that long, only 
varnish, so setting headers doesn't seem to fit.

Cheers, Sascha
