Well, caching is a bit tricky to do. It sounds easy at first, but
rapidly gets complex when you consider that the displayed contents of
a page can change due to
- page permissions
- included pages
- links to existing/non-existing pages
- search results/page lists
- changes in wiki trails
- conditional markup
- changes in page content due to the identity of the viewer
as well as other items.
This isn't to say that caching is impossible -- it's on my list of features
to be added to the core -- it's just not something that has reached a
high priority relative to other features.
