Can I use CAB IsolatedStorage to store bitmap images?

A quick question before I spend time implementing the CAB in my app:

I am currently using the ASP.NET System.Web caching functionality to store generated thumbnail bitmaps for my application. The trouble is that it only stores about a dozen thumbnails in-memory before purging the cache.

I was wondering if anybody had experience of using the IsolatedStorage functionality of the CAB to do this job? Would I be able to cache a larger number of items? Using 'maximumElementsInCacheBeforeScavenging="1000"' is it feasible to store 1000 thumbnail images using the CAB?

Thanks, Paul.
