[wp-hackers] should (can?) wp-cache be adopted into the core?

Couldn't agree more. I'd love to see a output caching system built in (or
even better, as a bundled plugin to make it modular). While WordPress can
run great under most circumstances, some blogs are just too dang popular to
run without a super computer. Having something that is essentially core, but
easily loadable / unloadable (a plugin) would solve this problem and make
WordPress even more feasible / desirable for large bloggers.

Case in point: I have a WP powered site that gets around a million hits a
month. While I know I could run it without WP-Cache, I'd rather put the CPU
to better use (like handling the site's forums which get around another
million or two hits a month). Not having to hack WP-Cache to work and
knowing for sure it'd support future versions would be a godsend.
