Does Nginx's proxy cache support any kind of cache validation?

Hey guys,

I have been playing with proxy cache, works well enough except for one issue.

My pages are localized (but use the same standard URL) and with other systems I can use either the vary or etag header to notify the cache of either updated content or simply a different version to serve. Nginx doesn't seem to be paying any attention to the etag so is this possible to with Nginx right now in any capacity?
