The FORM itself could be cached depending on the settings on the proxy
server for a site as could the results, but in general, the *results*
wouldn't be cached because results wouldn't have Last-modified or Expires
meta-information and the default caching time for HTTP results without
those meta-fields is 0. I'm currently experimenting with a default
expiration of 15 minutes to an hour or so, to see if it makes a difference
to users.
