a) Drupal configuration is loaded from settings.php. If herein we find  
$conf['page_cache_fastpath'] = TRUE then the following happens:
b) cache.inc is loaded
c) page_cache_fastpath is called
d) Drupal exits.

That avoids pretty much all of Drupal. This was added to the cache.inc  
patch to let you serve the files as fast as possible. I added this with an  
eye on the file caching patch.
