I'd be perfectly happy to host the new version of the patch, but the
changes Skip has made aren't ones I need.

I'm very ready to believe that having the cache persist makes a lot
of difference given how Skip uses it. But it wouldn't make much
difference to me. I also don't have ZODB installed and my experiences
with DBM files haven't been especially happy.

But if it's worthwhile having Skip's version available on my site,
I'd be glad to do that.

I certainly agree with that.
