Maybe eventually this whole idea of "it's a file system, it has to be
cached in RAM" idea should be replaced by some more sophisticated method
which takes speed (and various characteristics) of the affected
device/anything into account, and optimizes its usage by caching the
data on some faster storage means, if available.
