[Zope] Invalidate RAM cahce manager programatically

I found the Zcachable_invalidate call yesterday after my first post, but
I couldn't get it working properly, and figured it was the wrong way to

What's happening is that even after invalidating it, it still appears to
be cached. The value is changed in the database. I suspect I'm running
into a double-caching issue with the SQL methods too. Does the presence
of a ram cache manager affect the SQL method's caching techniques? Or is
it completely separate?

No, you've picked a good tree :-)  For each cached item
that you want to invalidate, call ZCacheable_invalidate().

For example, if you have something (dtml, python script,
page template?) named 'cacheable_article'.  Invoke 


Now if you want to do this for multiple ZEO clients the
problem gets harder.  I came up with my own crude invalidation server
that ran in parallel to the ZEO server.  Jim Fulton suggested that I
could just hack the ZEO server protocol to carry my invalidation
messages as well as its.  I looked into it but was more than a bit
terrified at the thought of messing with the ZEO protocol and
maintaining the result.
