In cases like this, where the cache might go stale due to context 
changes, the other alternative is to listen for events that would change 
the cached value and recalc then (or just remove the cache and recalc if 
requested again).  In some cases the additional complexity is probably 
worth the trouble in exchange for better performance in the "usual" 
case.  It's not clear to me which side of the fence this one is on.
