    Fetching the cache from disk really kills the performance benefit for some widgets. My recommendation is to store and fetch them from APC or memcached, preferably APC.

    would not the operating system be intelligent enough to cache frequently used small files? Do you need to do this explicitly?

    This will be a very useful feature, indeed.
    @Curious99 - On the main page of my site, I have 22 queries with just APC running but only 11 with APC + WidgetCache, so APC doesn't automatically cache everything as far as I can tell.

    What is APC and how do I turn it on? Or memcache? how do I turn it on and determine what will be cached?

    wp-widget-cache is useful once one uses supercache? My impression is that super cache caches the entire page, widgets and all. I have lots of widgets with lots of database queries, but they would rarely change (last 20 posts, last comments, etc)

    Not sure what kind of server you're on, but I wrote up a guide for APC on shared host.
