I have been doing that for quite some time and I can tell that it is not worthy to cache just database query results but rather the pages that are generated with the data that is returned with such queries. For that I have developed of a robust class that caches pages in files while it prevents that concurrent accesses update the cache files simultaneously to prevent corrupting the cached data.
