This is where I was taking issue before. You incur no real performance or
memory hits by keeping an extra reference (if you wanted a local caching
policy for a class, that is). 2 references to the same object do not more
memory take.

Sigh... we just disagree on what point this stuff needs to be added. I
really think just a simple wrapper is fine, that the core is not the place
to go throwing this in. If a wrapper just wasn't possible, I can see it.

But, I'm not really passionate about my position. So this will my final
spout about it :-)

Good luck with the patch.
