Be careful:

  The cache is maintained in "_v_" attributes.
  These attributes are thread local. If you flush one in a given
  thread, this does not mean that the instances in the other
  threads are flushed, too. Instead, you cannot be sure
  that a different request does not get stale data...

This fact led me to the implementation of ZCCSQL methods
(Cache Controlled SQL Methods). See
