Defines functions cache.project

Documented in cache.project

#' Cache a project's data sets in binary format.
#'
#' This function will cache all of the data sets that were loaded by
#' the \code{\link{load.project}} function in a binary format that is
#' easier to load quickly. This is particularly useful for data sets
#' that you've modified during a slow munging process that does not
#' need to be repeated.
#'
#' @return No value is returned; this function is called for its side effects.
