The proposal earlier in the thread was aiming towards allowing objects to get deactivated at any time if the cache was overfull, not just at transaction boundaries. This is desirable from a cache management point of view. Apart from the most trivial cases, it would allow _v_ attributes to disappear at random. Its a similar problem to the one that makes it hard to write an optimiser for python code, and I am unconvinced that this is sane. -- Toby Dickenson _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
