(You can deduce that the store now holds data about the populations of regions. Eventually data of this sort will be available from the web interface, but I haven't written that part yet, so the population data currently only used by the aggregator).

Not immediately, except for a few things I noticed today while I was testing the api. I'll email separately.
Cache is looking good!
