the fact that strigi can cache the results is huge. we should be able to 
pipeline requests (i'd hope, anyways) to minimize IPC slowdowns; and whilst 
context switches and IPC are slower than loading a plugin once discovered, 
moving disk heads unnecessarily is even more so.

we cache thumbnails for the same/similar reason.
