Fancy frameworks do use caching, but I think of that as a kludgy
workaround for lousy performance of the framework itself.  A fast
framework should not need caching, except maybe caching gzip output
for large blocks of contiguous text.

Some comment systems are better than others, but transferring the
comments to email sounds horrible, at least for users who use web
boards to keep stuff OUT of their mailboxes.

Yeah, that combines the worst of both worlds.
