A cache often holds around $7,000 worth of 'unimportant data', though, that
people don't want to re-fetch. Maybe being in America you don't see the
point that is so blatantly obvious to people in other parts of the world -
that data is expensive to re-fetch and, especially if you provide a search
engine for it, but even if you don't - a lot of the data is re-used and
real savings are made.
