 Replying to [comment:2 mcs]:
 > Overall, this looks good. Kathy and I have a couple of questions:
 > 1) The old patch had the concept that isolation may not be possible, in
 which case the images where not added to the cache, e.g.
 > {{{
 >   if (isIsolated)
 >     PutIntoCache();
 > }}}
 > Can you explain why that concept is no longer needed? Is it because
 everything should be isolated (since a document is always available when
 generating the cache key)?

 Now I think it is needed... So I have added a fixup patch in
 hash: ee7e5be3df465a9b32690e767796a3e258ef81b0

 > 2) Have you run the automated tests? How much manual testing have you
 done? Kathy and I did not build or run with the new patch yet.

 I have run the automated regression tests we wrote, and images appear to
 be cached correctly. I have also visited various sites and images
 manually, and it appears the images are landing in the cache with the
 correct first-party key.
