For stuff like {{CURRENTDAY}}, this is handled by reducing the cache lifetime
to an hour. This means that when you view a page using {{CURRENTDAY}} between
00:00 and 01:00 UTC, it'll probably show the wrong value, but we seem to have
decided that's acceptable for performance's sake.

However, hourly updates are totally unacceptable for {{CURRENTUSER}}, it needs
to literally change at every page view.
