 Moving this performance enhancement into 6.1 and self-assigning. It'll
 need a lot of testing in different environments, unit tests (i.e. a review
 to determine if there's coverage for the changes), and performance

 I agree that in-memory caching should yield performance gains in
 comparison to multiple hits to the filesystem. That hypothesis though will
 need to validated.

 Thought and analysis is needed to determine:

 * if there is a threshold for "in-memory" consumption. What do I mean? At
 what point does the size of the memory usage for in-memory metadata become
 less performant than fetching needed block .json files?

 * is there a potential for running out of memory on hosting plans that
 might be throttled?
