[wp-hackers] suggestions for the next (not immediate)release

I know WP-Cache2 is a server-side cacheing, but it indeed creates more 
than 1 copy of a page in the cache. frankly I haven't investigated this 
deeply due to lack of time, but 1 thing I can tell you is that if you 
are logged in to WP, then it'll create a cache-file for you & 1 for 
someone who's not logged in, so that you see the "edit post" links along 
with the post titles(if your theme has them). though this dual 
cache-file creation is OK & not a problem, but I just mentioned it to 
tell you that it indeed creates more than 1 copy of the cache-file!! ;)

I think that more can be found out by doing some basic testing, I'll do 
it if I get some free time any soon. Please don't take this part of my 
suggestion(multiple cache-file creation by WP-Cache2) entirely seriously 
as I don't have any facts to back it up as I admit I haven't tested it 
up, what I wrote is what some people who've tested told me. whether they 
are right or wrong, I'm not 100% sure.

but the WP-Cache2 issue put aside, I think even Matt & Ryan would agree 
that a lot can be done to tighten up the WP Code & its speed can be 
increased significantly!!

  What gave you that idea? Wp-Cache 2 -
  http://mnm.uib.es/gallir/wp-cache-2/ is a server side caching solution
  and has nothing to do with the client, the plugin checks to see if
  there is a static file for the requested page on the server and if not
  creates one, then it has checks to check things like when a new post
  is made so the cache gets flushed on the server automatically.
