If you get MANY small files file is possible ; as headers 
are stored (and html data).

In fact, the only solution would be to compress.. which is 
too complex to handle internally and would consumme too 
much cpu.

Well, no ; images are never stored in cache, but html data 
is, to rebuild the local structure tree.

Note that you can wipe the cache if you want to burn on CD 
the site, for example, as the cache is **only** useful for 
updates and retries.
