It's acceptable only for *persistent* cache, but not for transient 
*object* cache. Cocoon requires transient cache for it to work 
(Templates caching etc), while persistent cache is optional.

What purpose would that serve? It will store empty wrappers on the hard 
drive and retrieve those empty wrappers and hand over back to Cocoon, 
and all kinds of failures (NullPointerExceptions) will start happening 
all over the place.

The only viable solution currently is rollback to Excalibur's memory 
cache - unless JCS becomes something which can work as in-memory object 
cache (with optional overflow to disk).
