I want to cache static files based on the request query.

For example:
http://www.example.com/image.jpg?CacheTime=day
http://www.example.com/image.jpg?CacheTime=week
http://www.example.com/image.jpg?CacheTime=year

Is there any way to do something like this?
<QueryMatch CacheTime=day>
 Header unset Pragma
 ExpiresActive Off
 Header unset ETag
 Header unset Last-Modified
 Header set Cache-Control "max-age=86400, public"
</FilesMatch>

<QueryMatch CacheTime=day>
 Header unset Pragma
 ExpiresActive Off
 Header unset ETag
 Header unset Last-Modified
 Header set Cache-Control "max-age=604800, public"
</FilesMatch>

<QueryMatch CacheTime=year>
 Header unset Pragma
 ExpiresActive Off
 Header unset ETag
 Header unset Last-Modified
 Header set Cache-Control "max-age=31536000, public"
</FilesMatch>

I think maybe this is what you want:  http://tutorialpedia.org/tutorials/Apache+enable+file+caching+with+htaccess.html  Your code above doesn't identify what is to have it's cache settings altered.

I want this to be cached for one day:
http://www.example.com/image.jpg?CacheTime=day

I want this to be cached for one week:
http://www.example.com/image.jpg?CacheTime=week

I want this to be cached for one year:
http://www.example.com/image.jpg?CacheTime=year

These links all have the same file path, filename and extension.  The only thing that is different is the query.

I can't find any Apache directive that will take action based on the contents of a query string.
