Might be worth mentioning that in the master branch and upcoming 1.6
release there is a new cache bypass feature (linux only) that allows
the cache to be selectively bypassed for reading (but not for writing)
certain files.  Currently the only supported selection criteria is
file size, but with the basic infrastructure already in place it would
certainly be possible to add other types of criteria
