great stuff. just from initial clicking-around testing i'm seeing a 50% 
reduction in queries per page.

initial questions that come to mind (and this is before looking at the 
code closely): is there now or in the future going to be file locking? 
won't php processes then be in contention for the same files? isn't this 
the sort of thing that databases are good at but php filesystem functions 
are not?

(i'm sure this has been thought of, just thowing that out to start some 
discussion :)
