      Description

      The SoftRefFilesCache does not work.

      It's not it's fault but it goes more about the principal that garbage
      collection happens every 2 or 3 seconds and that it removes some of the files in
      the cache and this produce an inconsistent cache.

      This is particulary true when listing the content of a zip/jar file, the first
      read seems ok then some files disappear until eventually the directory get empty
      .

      I know about the small article about soft reference in cache wrote in Javalobby
      but I disagree with it and this prove that caching using soft reference does
      not work for caching.

      Please change the DefaultFileSystem to use the DefaultFilesCache, I did it, now
      it works much better.
