Thanks for the advice. Im not worried about the performance penalty, I do my development on the linux box so this wont even get used there, I just like to make sure the code works on the win2k box sitting right next to it, so when somebody asks, "Does it work on windows?" I get to tell them yes.

I prefer a store other than memory, so if mysql is better than the memory cache thats what I'll use.

But I still need some test code so I know when its ported :(

Oh well, I'll figure it out =0)
