Bug#376680: apache2-utils: Please include htcacheclean in the Debian Apache 2.2 distribution.

Package: apache2-utils
Version: 2.0.55-4
Severity: normal

Hi ! 

The apache proxy disk cache scheme has been realy improved in the 2.2 apache.
Before, there was an experimental non-working CacheSize directive in order to
limit the disk cache size, but now, it now longer exists.

Now, there is an utility, named htcacheclean, listed here :
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/programs/ , web man page here :

This utility manage the disk cache files.
Without it, it is very difficult (impossible ?) to limit the amount of disk 
space used by the apache proxy disk cache.

Please, could you include it in the apache2 debian distribution as it is in the
official apache distribution ?

Thanks you very much,
