Can someone explain me the rationale behind the RAM cache? Intuitively, it feels wrong to (re)implement caching of GridFS files because GridFS/MongoDB already performs some sort of caching in the background. The main benefit seems to be the non-preemptive caching strategy (JIT), which is a big win, but could have been easily achieved without an additional cache layer.
