are you looking for a simple way to use a SESI file format, such as a .bgeo? 
make a GDP dump out as a .bgeo? just use the GEO_Detail->save(foo.bgeo) call,
isn't it? or are you trying to write your own simplified cache file? it sounds
like that's what you are looking for, and that would be up to you to handle, of
