Just because you've decoded into a non-shareable page of memory doesn't
mean it wont swap and be trivialized into the same as the cached case
but with everything else worse.
Also, read-only caches can have the benefit of shoving the index table
into the head of the file and embedding it in the inode ensuring that
even your lookup table is fast and share-able.
