That old mfunc code is still there but I haven't documented it's use. 
You'd have to switch to half-on mode, and disable compression for it to 
work. Probably. I haven't tried it though. Look in wp-cache-phase2.php 
for "mfunc".

If the dynamic output is based on a cookie then you might as well use 
Javascript to fill in the details. That's what I would do and you'd have 
all the advantages of the static html cache file.
