what about using memcached ?

i'm guessing thumbnails are about 40-50k each.. you could just stick  
the things in memecache and let it cache a couple of thousand that way.


I wouldn't use the CPAN module though, there are 2 others which are  
being used at the moment.
there is a discussion about the Perl Client here: http:// 
lists.danga.com/pipermail/memcached/2006-June/ and http://
