Breaking third-party products is certainly a risk, but to be fair, I'm  
aware of only a single product so far that conflicts with CacheSetup.

While you certainly don't absolutely need CacheFu to take some  
advantage of Varnish (or Squid), in general my advice is to always use  
CacheFu unless you've got a good reason not to.  But since CacheFu is  
not currently included in the base Plone install, any example vcl  
should probably also support the non-CacheFu case.  Fixing http://varnish.projects.linpro.no/ticket/236 
  would help.  :-)
