Caching Range Requests

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.216.66

Is there anyone in the networking group that has time to work on caching range requests?  PDF.js always uses range requests if the server supports it and if a PDF is reloaded(or navigated to/from) it takes awhile since all the requests must be resent.  PDF.js could cache the PDF, but it seems it would be better to allow the networking layer to handle this.

Thanks,
