        <pre>Embedded platforms often don't have a persistent storage suitable for repetitive writes (eg: caching media files may wear out a flash drive, and RAM memory is scarce enough to use a tmpfs for caching).

Those platforms need a way to disable on-disk caching. Metrological has been successfully using an environment variable for that purpose downstream since 2016. If that implementation is upstreamed, other WPE users can benefit from it.</pre>
