comment Heredoc or an external template file in my bash script - how it affects readibility/maintanance?
Thanks @GlenPeterson, I think it's perhaps a lot simpler than your giving me credit for. It's basically shell variable substitution to put certain text in to specific places in the template (think mail-merge). But hopefully the example I've added will show you what I mean.

comment How important is it to implement a caching system in an MVC style framework?
Actually as you mention it I was planning on using asset caching and long expires for javascript and css etc. I also want to include optimisation methods such as concatenation and compression, with support for style-sheets written in LESS/SASS.

Thanks Daniel, I guess I'll do some more research before deciding what to implement. Like I said it's a learning exercise as much as anything so I'll see what I think is worthwhile.

I hadn't thought of caching being used like this, but it makes sense. So rather than caching framework classes/files the performance benefit comes from caching results sets and compiled view output renders?

Thanks, I see your point. Is this likely to be a huge headache for little reward even as a learning exercise?
