I've never seen this. I know there was some talk about it (I can't
remember if it was ClueCon or the mailing list or what). But I think
the general consensus was that simple cacheing isn't going to do much
good. It's almost like you need to know, based on the POST info if you
should cache or not.

I'd love a link to the blog if you can find it.  Meanwhile, I'm
running off to the source to see if that's true.

If it's something you really need, I'd consider adding caching at the
webserver layer, take the work of evaluating the request away from
freeswitch and move it to another box.

Also, you could write your own dialplan that worked as a caching
layer. First FreeSWITCH hits your custom dialplan, if it returns a
cached dialplan you're done. If not, it moves on to mod_curl_xml. And
finally, it makes its way to disk if it can't find a suitable
dialplan. I've never done it, but I hear it's not that hard to write.

Good luck.
