Hmmm... wouldn't it be better to just export flush and fua instead of
ignore_*? So that the admin can turn things on and off as [s]he seems
fit? Also, it might be better to export them in a single attribute,
say cache_control or something. Only subset of the combinations make
sense anyway - none, flush, flush_fua.

Thanks.
