Config peer review

Guys

I think I went a little overboard with the configuration of varnish.

I would like to ask if someone could please take the time to peer review my configuration, and if possible, provide some feedback / pointers.

My set up is, I have two webservers, and in front of it, varnish.
On the webservers, I have Wordpress and Vbulletin sites.

All in all, im very happy and impressed with Varnish, for everything just works (and im happy with my Cache hits vs Cache misses).

But im asking for peer review, for I think, either I could have potentially missed something, or worse, im doing something wrong.

Thanks, if you are prepared to help / review (If you ever in South Africa, look me up, I promise to buy you a beer.
).

Kind Regards
Brent Clark

P.s. Sorry I should have added that im using varnish 2.1.3-8.
