Description : A lightweight but robust filesystem based persistent LRU cache
Provides a persistent filesystem based LRU cache.
It uses the 'last accessed' timestamp generated by the file system
to determine the 'oldest' cache entry and discards the oldest
cache entries when needed to stay under the -keep_last limit.
If you store thing very fast (such that many entries receive the
_same_ time stamp), it is essentially a coin toss which entry
within a single timestamped second gets purged from the cache
to make room for new ones.
