i think the point is that the data that gets cached can and does change every 30 minutes, so caching 
doesn't really help. all 5 servers in the rsync.gentoo.org rotation are currently running rsync out 
of ram. i think i can safely say they wouldn't be nearly as fast as they are, running off a hard 
disk. besides, ram is cheap and has a small footprint (smaller blocks) using ramdrive, why not use it.
