Hey, sorry, just to be clear -- my concern isn't about performance,
but about this:

If you set the cgit cache to 1 minute, and the granularity of
timestamps is only 1 minute, then for the most part, the pages, though
cached, will see up to date.

However if you set the cgit cache to 1 minute, and the granularity of
the timestamps is 1 second, then for the most part, the pages will
seem out of date.

But this is just how caching is, so I'm not sure it's such a big
concern. Just throwing it out there, in case anyone had some elegant
solution or attitude about it.
