I already implemented ETag and NotModified for the aggregator I wrote
some time ago (which is in the python cookbook currently). Since I
also wanted to not download the same feed many times I implemented a
getPageCached() for twisted.web.client and submitted to twisted,
unfortunately it was not accepted both because twisted.web is
deprecated and because the patch provided an hard coded cache instead
of using an interface (which would have been absolutely better and not
that difficult, but since my patch wasn't going to be accepted I
didn't bother anyway).

Anyway you can find my patch for twisted.web.client here:
