[tor-talk] cached-descriptors data format

Hi all,

i've been looking that currently cached-descriptors account for more
than 4.2MB of flat file and 1.7MB of gzip compressed one.

If i understand correctly while chatting at tor dev meeting, there's a
certain amount of load of the Tor network given by the amount of clients
requesting network-related information.

Is part of this network load also related to cached-descriptors periodic

If so, can't be this network load due to big size be reduced by
implementing a different data structure other than a flat file, such as
something binary efficient, that would maybe decrease it's size?
