+1 in principle... however, rather than see this get committed directly,
I'd rather see a "caching framework" evolve...

we've also had other talks about making drupal more squid friendly, in
addition to using memcached, etc.

i'm willing to help put some brainpower into this...

I'm not sure if this is the best place to post, please let me know if I
should post somewhere else.

I've done some changes to bootstrap.inc to make it use the semaphore
cache of either eAccelerator or Turck mmCache instead of the database
to handle the caching. I've not done any benchmarking but I'm quiet
sure that it will speed things up. I'm afraid that I didn't base my
code on the latest version so I apologize if my changes aren't
compatible with the current cvs-version. As you can see, if neither
eAccelerator nor Turck mmCache isn't available on the system the old
caching mechanism will be used.

The changes are in cache_get, cache_set and cache_clear_all. I'm sorry
I didn't post a diff but I think it will be quiet easy to implement
