There is one other thing. The cache key that is returned by 
JXTemplateGenerator should be the src + jx:cache-key attribute value. 
Since the jx:cache-key is only a hash of the objects that are used in 
the template. These could, in theory, be the same as those objects used 
by another template. Therefore it is neccessary to also qualify the 
cache key with location of the template.
