Thanks, Jay. I did see this, but given how minimal my needs
are, it did seem a lot simpler just to throw PageCache at it,
add a few lines to the config, and walk away. I don't need an
external cache, really.

I may have an app in the future that will benefit from this.

If I can figure out the Config::General problem, I think I'll
be on my way!
