Basic pricing fetches is the only functionaily I am missing as well. Agree with previous comments that would allow me to stop loading Auc Classic and that is what I was hoping for.

seems kind of incomplete without those bits in it.
I guess another way to look at it is that its already incomplete without any AucAdv functionality. At least this provides some AucAdv support, and if there are others who really desire the caching aspect then they can badger some talented LUA developer to add the other bits :)
To me it seems like its worth uploading. You are not removing any of the existing functionality (like breaking support for Auc Classic) so its hard for me to see how its not an improvement. I doubt the cached mode is used much, I would think most have Auc (Classic or Adv) loaded always and not just set to load at AH only. So in this case you added support for those of us that use Auc Adv and load always AND I can uncheck Auc Classic from addons, save memory and item tooltip space!
I currently use GarbageFu as my main inventory management addon. I use it primarily to determine what items I should auction vs. sell at a vendor (there are some white items like the cooking meats which sell very well on Auction), and to autosell my gray items. A few months ago I swtiched to using Auctioneer Advanced as my primary AH tool. I am still running Auc Classic since GarbageFu is not updated to work with Auc Advanced, and if I disable Auc Classic I lose AH prices within GarbageFu.
I really really like GarbageFu and have been using it since I started playing WoW. That being said, I understand it is no longer being maintained by the orginial developer (I think this is the case at least).
I am wondering if anyone has considered taking over the maintenance of this addon and updating it to use Auctioneer Advanced. Or if anyone has any suggestions of another FuBar addon (that is maintained) I could use to replace the funtionality of GarbageFu.
Another possibility would be extending GarbageFu to get price information from something like LilSparkysWorkshop. That way as Lilsparky updates his addon and pricing sources GarbageFu would reap the benefits without having to be updated itself. Just some thoughts, I am not a LUA guy myself so just trying to share some ideas that may or may not be good ones :)
Thanks in advance for any advice or assistance, and happy gaming.
