What kind of caches are you talking about?
Are these full page caches?  The kind that get stored into /public?

My question is, can you instead of adding /robot to the URL when apache
finds the robot, can you instead change Apache's DocumentRoot?
It seems to be that this would prevent apache from finding the cached
page.  Also, if you actually point to another copy of your /public, you
could get the normal static pages...

I think perhaps since you are talking about changing mongrel's caching
behaviour that you aren't talking about the page caches that get stored
into /public. (Well, I'm rusty on terminology here)
