What kind of cache algorithm do you want to implement? LRU is probably
not a good idea for the expected usage pattern (somebody browses stuff
that rarely anyone looks at, that should not kill other stuff from the
cache etc...)
Take a look at ARC (google:ARC IBM cache), but it has a fixed page size
which is inappropriate here.
