CacheServer option (or whatever to work around server error limit)

Hello everybody,

I am still struggling with pacman having the server error limit enabled by
default. My attempt to fix this for my use case with http headers [0] was

Also someone proposed to add a configuration option to disable server error
limit [1]... It was rejected as well.

But I guess the best way to solve this is finally implementing an option
"CacheServer", as requested a long time ago [2]. Looks like Allan did not
fine the "spare 30 minutes" [3] to implement... :)

Thus I would like to have a look. Still I would like to have a rough guide
where to put what and how to glue things. Anybody wants to share some
thoughts what an acceptable solution should look like?

main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
