I think you missed the point, i think we can all agree the sqllite db on
tmpfs is faster, but if u can share the cache between ur nodes, you should
have a higher cache hit ratio as far as I can figure.

Whether or not this cache hit ratio increase is worth the penalty of
querying a central sql server is the question I guess.
Even if you got a replication setup, so you query the sql server running on
the local host, it will still be slower than sqllite on tmpfs.

My 5 cents.
