STR (without WebIDE):
1. Write an Open Web App;
2. Add an AppCache;
3. Update Open Web App source code;
4. Deploy App.

Result: The changes are not taken into account because we have forgotten to change a comment in the AppCache.

The workarounds include using a deploy script and `sed` to automatize the task (which is above the level of many beginning developers), or use server-side preprocessing of the AppCache (likewise).

I believe that WebIDE could simply automatize this: if the manifest references an .appcache file, whenever a change is detected in a file listed in said file, add/update the first line of the .appcache file with a timestamp.
