+1  Given the 'marginal gains', and given that it does absolutely freaky 
things if it is in a bad state (one case was caught, you've hit another), 
object caching should be DISABLED by default, and require enabling by an 
advanced user (given 'average' shared hosting user won't see much of a 
gain -- say compared to the wp-cache factors...).
