I agree with you that the caches should be separate, if you're going
to cache ranges. You could imagine a single query (perhaps entered
interactively) would replace the entire row caching all of the data
for the systems' interactive users. For example, a summary page of who
is most over the last month active could replace the profile
information for the actual users who are using the system at that
