There is no way to figure out if a http request got a 304 response, because in 
nsHttpChannel::ProcessNotModified(), it deletes mResponseHead (which had 304 
set on it) and replaces it with mCachedResponseHead which has 200 set.  It then 
proceeds to set mCachedContentIsValid, which is really what I want access to.

exposing mCachedContentIsValid would give you only 304 cases, but any case when
the cache is being read.  this is probably sufficient for what imglib needs, right?

Attached patch v1.0 patchSplinter Review
this patch does two things:

1) adds nsICachingChannel::isFromCache() method to indicate whether or not a
channel's data is coming from the cache.

2) makes nsHttpChannel not discard its cache entry when canceled if its cache
entry is simply being read.
pavlov: does this do the trick for you?  if so, can i get an r=?  thx!
