Caching strategies for Vanilla

Let's say I'm using Vanilla to serve a busy blog homepage, rendering selected discussions into a series of blog posts. Is it ever worth caching the entire page to the filesystem via a basic atomic PHP caching mechanism? Or does running memcache make this a pointless exercise? I can see in class.database.php that query results are cached, but it's not clear to me how long for, or how cached results would be invalidated.

Even if Vanilla/memcache help, could simply Including a slab of cached HTML still be the best way to deal with a siege of new Guests?

Finally, enabling filecache in conf breaks Vanilla completely. Is that to be expected? I just thought I'd try it :)
