[Tilecache] Running Standalone under WSGI with

I have a working GIS stack of Mapnik, Tilecache and OpenLayers. I'm new not only to web-based GIS but also Python, Linux, etc.
Do I have to run the "python tilecache_http_server.py" command every time I want to use Tilecache?
Can I place it in some startup file? I have a server from Slicehost and when I set it up according to their tutorials I added a file that gets run every time the server boots. Could I do something like that with this command? Something like:
# In run_tilecache_http_server.py there would be some code to start the server
# Then I would do something like this:
chmod +x /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/run_tilecache_http_server.py
Would this work? Does it even make sense? Also, does running the Tilecache server constantly have any negative effects on the overall memory?
