It's much easier to turn your HIGH-performance webserver into a slug, by 
running stuff you don't need on the same machine. Memory unused by the 
webserver can then be used by the OS to provide filesystem caching, which 
indirectly greatly benefits a webserver, much more then a local cache can 
speed things up.
