A few times ;)
So there are a few proposals to allow more generational caching which
Dustin pointed to you (wiki it!), but I see an easy route for you.
If you're interesting in implementing something that's merge-able, I
don't want to discourage you :) But as an alternative, if you're already
using hostname+identifier as a key prefix, you can add one more and make
the whole set "ghetto generational"
Just add a serial number somewhere (cache it locally, in another key,
User activates feature, serial++, then magically all of their own data
is gone. The LRU will push it out eventually if needed.
I ... might've ... put this up an example on the wiki. It's been
credited to someone else. I'll check and add later if not.
