Shouldn't it be possible to cache the final page to disk? That's what I'm
trying to do (with php though). The original page generation takes 70-30
msec, and when the complete page is cached to disk, it only takes 1-2 msec
to render (I guess it's as fast as a static pure html page).

Anyway my question is : could this 404 trick be used with php, appache (and
windows?... hum hum)?

Does anyone knows if this caching in memory exists also in php?

Thanks !
