I just chatted with an Opera person who fixed my Opera via VNC. I asked 
about caching woes. He pointed me that I could configure my Opera so it 
always checks for fresh pages (it only checks whether there is something 
new, so it's not THAT big a problem). I asked whether we could omit some 
headers so that Opera won't cache the page (like node edit page):

"Once we didn't cache pages if the http headers told opera not to cache the 
page, but as many webservers are configured to set those headers without 
any good reason we had to remove that again. Many forums and dynamic pages 
send that header which made opera reload the page everytime. and _many_ 
users complained, so we disabled this behaviour for unsecure sites.

So, in short, it's not possible, the users shall configure their Opera?

Yes, you'll have to configure your opera that way.

May I publish the last question and answer to it?

That's public information, so yes."

So here you are. This is the latest, official word.
