Hi folks,

We've worked with jpcache in the past to produce static page caching  
for dynamic sites.  We'd like to see the ability to create and edit  
pages with drupal that get saved as good old fashioned html files.

Perhaps this would happen on a daily basis, perhaps only under severe  
load, perhaps only for paths with a .html extension, however not all  
drupal content needs to be loaded from drupal all of the time.   
Throttle is nice.  The page caching is a good step in the right  
direction too..  But I'd like to cache an entire page so that php  
isn't even loaded at all to deliver the page.

So, I'd just like to know what attempts have been done to do this in  
the past (if any), and what problems they had (so that hopefully we  
don't repeat the same ones).

We've investigated this for other CMS's, but not for Drupal.
