Greetings Daniel from Daniel --

It would be good to know from the Lindens as to the negative effect from
having a cache size that is too big.  I know that there are some diminishing
returns with web browsers - they can get to the point where, if the cache is
too big, they spend more time tracking down the item than it would take to
just go fetch a fresh one.  One of the crucial things would be:  what is in
main memory, relating to on-disk cache?  A side effect would be.. the app
size in memory gets to the point where the OS starts swapping other things

It's all a balance ;)  Would be good to see the Linden guidance on this.
