You can't really use options from the cache because the cache is loaded 
before everything except wpdb.  You could do a direct SELECT, but 
get_option() is not available.

Maybe we should simply disable persistent caching by default and let 
those who want it and know they can use it turn it on.  I'm getting 
tired of working around safe_mode and all of the other issues.
