The text/python cache system is not meant to handle binary files, it is 
a system to cache dynamic text, where part of the text is static and 
part is dynamic. The text is always unicode, and it is encoded to 
whatever encoding you use for the wiki pages.

Maybe you describe how your system works - why and how you use your 
formatter to generate those files.
