A few quick points:

   -  There isn't a single cache.  There are actually multiple
      persistent and somewhat independent systems in the viewer.

   -  The cache controlled by the UI is known to be unsafe beyond
      31 bits at the present.  So, 2GB and no more.  Whether *that's*
      a good idea on any particular host is an open question.

This is why Kelly's and Joel's suggestions are spot on:  user stories
define the desired result then the engineers design the system to
achieve those results and create the tasks that make that happen.
