Each ZODB version also has its own cache. There is already a mechanism for 
ensuring that lightly used versions do not hold on to memory indefinitely. 
That should be much easier, and might just be adequate.

One big disadvantage is that it does not enforce a strict upper limit on 
cache/memory usage, so memory usage will grow if all storages are frequently
