Yay Matt!

This cache thing is pretty smooth.  I haven't seen any weirdness with 
the Pretty Permalinks yet, but I'm still watching.

Is there likely to be a disk space issue as the cache increases in size? 
  For example, can we assume a certain size cache based on the database 
size if Google crawls the entire site?  And how will that affect admins 
with small-space hosts?  I suppose you could keep the cache off...
