After some of the recent issues folks have had with 
DBIx::SearchBuilder's overly agressive caching, I started doing some 
digging. And found myself a reproducible test case which demonstrates 
these issues very nicely in the form of the rt.cpan.org RT3 toolset.  
The issues basically come down to:

* The cache expiry mechanism doesn't expire data when you want it to
* The cache expiry mechanism works _globally_ rather than per object 
type, which starts to hurt when you're trying to enforce different 
behaviour on different object types.
* The cache expiry mechanism is hopelessly naive and pretty close to 

I got most of the way through a solution on the plane back from 
EuroFoo, but ran out of power.  More soon.
