Ah, it probably means a precision "during the life-time of the process or 
until VSICurlClearCache() is called" (just added). It's just a RAM cache.

Yes, that was the more or less dead code I was mentionning too. Actually it is 
compiled in, and can be enabled with CPL_VSIL_CURL_USE_CACHE=YES, but it is 
very likely broken, unfit for any reasonable purpose etc. No warranty. Consult 
your lawyer, be sure you have a fallout shelter ready, etc ;-)
