Yes.  :-)  It's how it's advertised, and I ran a couple online bandwidth
tests to check it.

The content will be updated 6-12 times an hour, so it's not truly static.

Sorry, I'm not sure what "apr" is (besides April, American Public Radio,
Yes, even with plain OS file caching, I'm not sure if the memory cache will
buy me much initially.  I don't think I'm going to know until I get to a
point where my code can realistically test the difference.  It's possible
that the amount of data could significantly increase such that I can still
viably keep it in memory, but the OS may not cache that many small files.
