I think Mr. Harter's (IIRC) suggestion is going to be pretty near to
optimal. You might improve it a bit with LRU cacheing or something,
but no matter what you do you will be waiting on the disk. I think
that also is plainly obvious.

However there must, must be some way that those really fast
pi programs like PiFast, QuickPi, etc. manage to do huge runs
that are too big to fit in RAM so fast. How do they do it? Any
ideas?
