no, there is no support for that format. It is used internally, though.

At the moment it supports two formats. 

- /proxy/tms/1.0.0 as described in http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Tile_Map_Service_Specification 
- /proxy/tiles a simplification of the TMS format

The later does not serve any metadata and always begins with a single tile on level 0, as expected by OpenLayers.

It should be easy to add the Tilecache format. You only need another subclass of TileRequest. See

Yes, that should work then.
