    | Only for small files where the per file overhead of a read is significant.

    That's potentially a common problem, and "cat *" is an overly-simplified
    example. Either you force the "plugin" to say whether it wants to be
    cached or not, or you cache everything, because there are going to be
    plugins like "tar -xjp" for which caching is a HUGE increase.
