Sorry, but I read this message only now.

On the one hand it is simply a matter of avoiding copy & paste or 
reimplementations of concerns in different ways (of which some might be 
buggy like with XMLFileModule). On the other hand the Cocoon cache is 
well tested and works well - while the XMLFileModule cache does 
obviously not. ...

... The Cocoon core especially moves objects from transient store to 
persistent store if the transient store is full - or to nirvana if they 
are not serializable. At least the store does not grow endlessly and 
does not lead to OutOfMemoryError.

So yes, switching to Cocoon cache is preferable to homegrown caches.

For the Cocoon issue itself: Few days ago Ralph mentioned possible 
progress "in the next couple of days". Unfortunately, it seems he had 
not the time to make it, so it is not in Cocoon 2.1.9. But from other 
mails on the list I assume there will be a new release in the near 
future (be it or 2.1.10) anyway. Hopefully including the fix 
then. Any comments on this, Ralph?
