For the majority of pages generated through page templates, I think
the static generation would be fine. I'm looking primarily into the
browse interface at the moment.

I'm quite skeptical on caching in general (even about the static page
generation). It *should* be possible to make it fast enough so that
it doesn't need caching. I consider caching a work-around, not a
solution - and one with severe drawbacks.
