Miscommunication on my part -- my aforementioned Varnish-in-front
referred to site dev in general.

To date, it's been in front of Symfony sites. Works like a champ there.

Since you're apparently working with WP under real-world loads, do you
perchance have a production-ready, V6-compatible VCL & nginx config you
can share? or point to?

Yep. Hence my question(s)!

This time 'round, it's not entirely 'my' motivation; came with the job's
"prefer to haves".

Based, in apparently large part, on the usual use of TheGoogle; these 2
in particular:

Ah, so not (yet) in the FOSS product. I see it's proxy_cache, not
fastcgi_cache, based ...

Again, yep.

Thx!
