multi-manifest R needed. The URLs can be separated with a common(manifest
="content.manifest,structure.manifest,scripts.manifest"). Having more then one
manifest cache file would allow separation control of cache. Many websites and
apps can use multi-manifest to create better unnecessary reCasheing of urls in
a single manifest file. This would have great benefits on lowing net traffic,
server load, and the user agent load. Possible eliminating a power-plant or
two of world energy demand. Robert from

We should delay this until after we've worked on the new system, to see if this gets obsoleted by it.
