It seems I totally misread your email.  :)

But you're right, you could probably do something similar with 

I haven't looked specifically at the ramifications of this, but why not 
call update_page_cache() from get_posts() when $q['page_name'] is set? 
It might not be as direct, but it should have two benefits:

1) Compartmentalize the aggregation of page fullpaths.
2) Allow those page fullpaths to be accessed by other code after the 
cache is loaded.

Just a thought.

In any case, sorry for the misread.  The category stuff should still 
work, if anyone else is interested in reviewing it.  Maybe I'll just 
submit the patch to Trac.
