Error pages.

This will not work with USER_INT objects on pages. Most of sites that I made have USER_INTs at least on front page. So caching to files will not be useful. Also if page does not exist in cache, we still have to show static page with nice error message.

For static pages - yes.

It seems that we have two possibilities now:
(1) single error pages (similar to 404 handling)
(2) static pages

I plan to make number 1 for now. Number 2 may follow :)
