What about instances of caching? E.g. I have a lot of look and feel options
that can be set by the user. However if you attempt to print them out as
dynamic CSS on the fly it creates extra server load, not to mention an ugly
lot of CSS before the content in the page's source. Instead the CSS is saved
as a local file at the time of saving the options and then that file is
linked in the source.
