That's certainly true, yes.  The zope-plone.vcl example is not in any
way efficient for authenticated sessions.  As I recall, it was
originally used for sites which did not publish through Varnish at
all, or used authenticated sessions.

I'll look at the points in this thread, test a bit, and update the
example.  The plone.recipe.varnish template looks especially nice.

Are there any good reasons not to run Plone with the CacheFu (or
CacheSetup) product installed?  Would a non-CacheFu example be of any
