This should do the trick:

Just extract it to /wp-content/object-cache.php and you should be good to go. Let me know if it gets the job done and I'll publish it in a more "official" manner. (since it resides in wp-content it's a plugin... it just doesn't show up in the admin center's plugin page though).

I'm willing to take up the maintenance of the file-based caching along with NST's existing WP plugins for XCache and eAccelerator; as you point out, it can be pretty important :)
