[Sugar-devel] feature freeze issue #1: icon cache

as per the roadmap , yesterday was feature freeze, meaning that
only bugfixes may be pushed without prior consultation.
There's something that I hoped would make this release but that still
hasn't been accepted:
http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/8822 - Create an mmap'able icon cache
Without this new feature, we have a limited size cache kept in memory.
Meaning that icons need to be fully rendered the first time that are
shown in the UI and that once we exceed the cache limit, we'll be
doing very expensive computations at every UI redraw.
Would like to hear opinions about having to commit it in this release
or being able to wait for the next one.
