   1. First of all, great replay
   2. I am really not agree with you. The common user NEED caching. you may
   started out from the assumption that the most users using near-by hosting..
   today, the internet is so global that many israeli users for example, host
   ther website over dreamhost.. or maybe US client browse to israeli website..
   Also, google detect this website as slow..
   3. You can cache pages and keep the website update by db.. (by removing
   page cache every saving)
   4. With the default installation, wordpress is really tiny and small.
   But today, a lot of programers develop over WP website who are basicly
   simple but have a lot of components and actually rich(sliders, multiple
   post-type etc).. I think we should consider it.
   5. Maybe if the core will recognize the common mem-caching system and
   try to connect to them automatically(with option do disable of course) it
   will be awesome.


   1. You offer here a great idea!
   2. I think we should at least develop api(with basic implementation)
   that the 3rd-party plugins can extend and improve.
   3. If there will be some api-interface, and we will encourage for it in
   the plugin repository it will serve us well.


   1. By my opinion the current system isn't good enough.
   2. Actually the current ststem is joke. it only save some vars in global
   array.. mean nothing.

*I think that minify and browser caching at least are the minumum.* what do
you think guys?
