[mod_python] cache-control and session-id

If I use sessions, mod_python adds a header

< Cache Control no-cache="Set Cookie">

What I can't make out despite searching all over google is whether by 
default the page generated will get cached by proxies if I don't include 
a cache-control header.

I must admit I thought that without any cache-control header, proxies 
would not cache the page.

I assume that the no-cache option means the session cookie is not 
cached. That is my understanding of the info I have read.

I'm not that clued up on caching, so I'm hoping that someone can give me 
the real facts if any on this

Hoping for some enlightenment.
