Right now we're caching a fairly limited subset of things, so it would 
be unlikely that something like Google crawling your site would increase 
the disk space at all. Posts and comments will probably always by 
primarily in the DB, except maybe for the front page.

(It would also be interesting to have a stats plugin kick a single post 
into "cached" mode if it gets a burst of traffic or something. We would 
need a garbage cleaner so these sorts of caches wouldn't stick around
