Thank you. I'm not really concerned with boot speeds, the other person 
was. It depends on how I am going to organize the thing. But it is 
probably going to be used for runtime stuff more.

Especially if the thing fills up I expect boot time information not to 
be in that cache, you're right.

Thanks. You people do inspire some confidence :) ;-) :).
