Where to store
the data is an open question, one that requires

there may be cloned dbs and test-specific copies of images and
images/math hanging around. (Depending how we handle the cache
information, there may also be fossil cache data). This requires
cleanup after a wiki crash.

What about memcached?
(that would be a key based on the original db name)
The storage has to be persistent to accommodate wiki crashes (e.g., httpd
crash, server OS crash, power outage). It might be possible to use
memcachedb, but as far as I am aware that requires installing Berkeley
DB, which complicated deployment.
Why not employ the already installed DB software used by the wiki? That
provides persistent storage and requires no additional software.
