The RAMCacheManager is associated with (what I call) site building
objects (those have an identifying URL, for example).
"User" objects are not site building.

The UserFolder is but usual implementations do not inherit
"ZCachable" -- and therefore cannot (directly) use the

When an object supports transparent caching (which would be necessry
for a UserFolder), then it must contain code interfacing with
a cache manager. I doubt that SUF contains such code...

But hopefully you see that the questions are difficult for a standard user.

  When he uses SUF and determines that caching is needed because
  authentication and authorization are too costly, he may learn
  that Z SQL Methods can be cached.
  Later, he changes some user properties and has to observe
  that they take effect with a delay (as stale values are cached)
  and there is no reliable way to flush/invalidate the cache.
  He may learn that there are CCZSQLMethods the cache of which
  can be flushed, but he may have had long hours of problems.

With "exUserFolder", he visits the configuration tab
and selects "with caching for XXX minutes" -- that's
it (unless he uses ZEO).

Thus, if someone needs caching, then "exUserFolder" is easier
then SUF.

The software is built. "exUserFolder" does its job.
No reason to switch at this time...
