There is a caching mechanism, which you can override if you instantiate your own  FileSystemManager.

AFAIR from reading the code, each provider has some control over deciding which files should
be cached.

For your initial voyage, the defaults should work fine.

Q - local cacheing of remote files (e.g. HTTP) </div><div>
</div>From what I've read, I think that if I use say HTTP for file access, 
there's cacheing of files locally in a temp dir to avoid retrieving them 
on every reference?

That's pretty much exactly what I need. Just want to check I'm not 
misunderstanding this, and if there are any gotchas to be aware of

I'd assume that things like Last-Modified would be checked at some 
period, and new copies pulled down if changed?
