He definitely wasn't the only one. :) I've given it some thought too and was
trying to find a way around all of the string compares while allowing the
fine tooth references to clear the individual post's cache rather than all
of them.  For example the periodic saves of a draft post you are writing
shouldn't clear the cache of your currently dugg articles.  A properly
indexed attribute table might provide better results than string based tag
arrays on the cache objects. That would allow a btree to do the work but
would shift the resource usage around again if in a much more limited way.
