What it does:

My previous load times(no template caching) were aprox. .0650 seconds so I'm liking what I see here so far. Hope it holds up

Works fine but sometimes it got an error:

Warning: array_flip() [function.array-flip]: The argument should be an array in /includes/template_cache.php on line 237

I'm using the latest 1.2.2 xcache

Does anyone know if this works properly with VBSEO 3.1? I've read that orban's cache conflicted somewhat with it (some unpredictable behavior). If so, is there any way to fix it or disable portions?

You might want to use the template_compile hook as a trigger for updates.
