What's the consensus on db caching?
It would seem like that road is the lowest-common-denominator -
perhaps the only way to performance-enhance for restrictive shared
There are several levels to start with - caching whole pages, a la
movable type - but dealing with frequent cache invalidation (who said
this was the most difficult problem in computer science?). Lower level
caching - of the post object, comment objects, etc - should be worth
it too. It might not enable any old shared host to survive a full-
scale digg+slashdot attack, but might let one hold up a smaller rush
Is db caching worth it? Is there any demand for it? Does it exist
already, in some ready form?
