    Currently there is an option to either cache or not to cache the homepage. I would like to be able to set a homepage specific "Maximum lifetime of cache objects," which might be less than the other pages on the blog.

    Are you having a problem with your home page being updated with fresh content when a new post is published to the roll? Sites like mashable.com for example have such a theme and W3TC handles this case just fine.

    Yes there are times when the homepage does not display the fresh content. I set W3TC to cache pages for logged in users, which includes the Admin, so I can see what everyone else sees.

    I didn't see this mentioned, but in the w3-total-cache/ini directory you have a .htaccess file that could be appended to an existing file to help with non-w3tc caching. I found this very helpful. Perhaps this should be mentioned somewhere prominent so it isn't missed. Very thoughtful work you have done with the .htaccess file.

    This is not a known issue. I would need some steps to duplicate this. Also I don't recommend caching pages for logged in users in any case, if you want to see what other users see, simply fire up another browser that doesn't have an authenticated session (or logout).

    That file is there for the benefit of people that like to investigate. However it isn't perfect yet, when it is, it will be rolled into a new feature.
