I have fragment caching code written and lightly tested.  I still  
need to add a good way for pages to set their lifetime, but that  
shouldn't take very long.  Right now, everything uses a hard timeout  
of 10 seconds--great for testing, not so useful in reality.  Give me  
a day or so.

The bigger issue is wether we want to make this the default in Typo  
or not.
