    Caches the *filtered* file `filename` with `key` until the file is

    :param key: the cache key
    :param filename: the file to cache
    :param filter: is the function used for filtering. Normally `filename` is a
        .py file and `filter` is a function that bytecode compiles the file.
        In this way the bytecode compiled file is cached. (Default = None)

    This is used on Google App Engine since pyc files cannot be saved.
