          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Page Loading

Doing persistent caching in the engine itself instead of hiding it under the
networking layer would have some advantages:

- The engine has more information about the usage of resources and can limit
disk writing to those that are more likely to be needed again.
- Lazy writing from memory cache to disk, no need for thenetworking layer to
keep duplicate copies of the data.
- Possibility to cache processed resources (js bytecode, token steams etc.) in
the future
- More consistent behavior when caching and revalidation semantics are
implemented in one place only.
- Potentially simpler, more focused networking layer.
- Closer cache integration with the engine open up new optimization
