Cached revisions are stored in the archive itself, and contain a
tarball of all the files of one particular revision.  A revision
library is stored outside the archive and contains unpacked copies of
revisions, with files which are identical in multiple revisions hard
linked to each other.

That's not really a very good explanation, I'm afraid, but perhaps
someone else can jump in and explain it better.  The tutorial goes
into details of why and how you'd want to use each.
