Did FUSE start to make a fiendship with performance? Last time I saw it,
they hated each other...

Caching actually useful not only on slow, but also very fast links
because of its ability to batch data and greatly reduce latencies of
reply-request protocols, which in turn (for that protocols) greatly
increases performance. If you are using async processing (like POHMELFS,
iirc it is the only such approach in networked fs, cifs/smbfs and others
wait after request is sent and only then proceed with the next one) that
will allow to drain the cache very quickly and proceed with the next
data set.
