HTTP Purge support for (fastcgi|proxy)_cache

Hey guys (and girls)

We're using fastcgi_cache/proxy_cache quite extensively at our sites,  
and are in dire need of purging content from our cache. Explicit files  
will do in our case, but I clearly see the point of wildcards. The  
only config option I can think of (except modifying parts related to  
proxy_cache and fastcgi_cache such as proxy_cache_methods) is some  
kind of "allow_purge" ACL that is similar to the allow-directive  
already found in Nginx.

We can offer funding for such a feature if feasible assuming this is  
open sourced and preferably ends up in upstream if Igor sees fit.  
Please contact me off list for further discussion if you're interested!
