If you look at the configuration, you'll see that 'some_method' is defined
as the cache_hook.  This is to determine if the request (prior to dispatch)
should be cached or not.

>From the synopsis:

            # Optionally, a cache hook to be called prior to dispatch to
            # determine if the page should be cached.  This is called both
            # before dispatch, and before finalize.

I've used PageCache, and it works out well enough.  This was before I
learned about how to properly setup a reverse proxy that can cache (varnish
is my favorite) -- since spending some hours learning how to work with
Varnish, I haven't used PageCache and likely never will again.

However, if you just want a plugin to "work" then PageCache will work fine.
