AH! Now we're making sense... So, the problem I have with the "store" 
for now is that we have a friggin' store janitor who comes in at 
intervals and wipes out the whole thing...

So, actually, in the store I can't be really sure of what's being 
"stored" for real, because it might be cleaned out...

Which makes me think that actually the store is more of a cache, than a 
_real_ store...
