Brian Layman and I are going to be mentoring this project for GSoC.
Andy Skelton mentioned that he might have some code or ideas to
contribute as well. I think it's definitely time for there to be some
level of built-in output caching. Everyone has their day on Digg et
al, and I'm personally tired of seeing those WP sites go down until
such time as the author can install a output caching plugin. We can
do better. The downsides of caching (i.e. dealing with hyper-dynamic
content and managing expirations) will be greatly blunted when the
output caching framework is in WP core.
