Using varnish to offload (and cache) your OAuth requests

For a current project both me and a colleague are working on a big API system that authenticates through an OAuth system. Normally, such an API does all the necessary OAuth checking, handling of tokens etc, but we wanted to have a system that actually offloads our authentication just the same way one could offload HTTPS traffic for keeping the API simple, extendible and even performant.
