[ic] System requirements?

For 'Low Traffic' settings all included pages...eg Leftside, Logobar etc are
read from Disk _every_ time.
eg in catalog.cfg
Variable      LEFTSIDE   [include config/__TEMPLATE__/leftside]
The TAG [include ....] is assigned to the Variable LEFTSIDE

For 'High Traffic' settings these pages are loaded into memory when MV/IC is
started/restarted, therefore serving/building from RAM rather than via disk
eg in catalog.cfg
Variable      LEFTSIDE   <leftside
The WHOLE of the content of the file catroot/config/leftside is assigned to
the Variable LEFTSIDE

'Low Traffic' is useful when designing a site....it negates the need to
'reconfig' your catalog every time you make a change to an 'included' page
(in the CatRoot/config dir)
