I think there must be some misunderstanding. Ask said: "If you need
tens of thousands of values set and get per request", and Cal
answered: "Yes ..."

Cal, you don't need to set/fetch thousands of values on *each*
pageview, right? That would be very, very, very weird?

So if you don't have to get *all* those values on every request, then
your approach doesn't seem to make any sense?

Or perhaps I misunderstand something.
