Re cache management schemes, I think that depends on whether you mean "system

practical purposes caching is central to LISP; as such, it's a little weird
to say it's architecturally unimportant.
I don't think Joel is saying that it is architecturally unimportant, but
rather that within the architecture it various caching schemes may work
better than others, and that experience may dictate the answer to this.
What are system effects, by the way, is its own interesting question.
