So looks like your saying the best way to do it is to do a separate
location and duplicate the fastcgi setup in that location and add the
fastcgi_cache stuff.

I can work with that, however I came across this example while googling (
https://gist.github.com/magnetikonline/10450786) that uses "if" to set a
variable which I could use to match on the URL and trigger
fastcgi_cache_bypass for everything not matching. Is "if" so toxic that I
shouldn't consider doing it this way?
