There is no persistent cache in varnish. At least, not yet.

Hi, we're reconsidering using Varnish again, and this question I posted 4 months ago is the biggest blocker for us.  We've been using Squid for a while, but it doesn't have collapsed forwarding, which we need (and Varnish provides).  But we also need a persistent cache.
We're ready to roll our own caching proxy, but if Varnish already provides persistence, then that would be a huge boon.  We tried playing around with Varnish -s persistent 4 months ago but it didn't seem to be what the name implied.
