Subject Re: newbie question: SharedValue vs NodeCache

SharedValue behaves more like an atomic operation. NodeCache is a cache for a node. To be honest,
I totally forgot about SharedValue! I have a terrible problem with memory (not kidding). These
recipes were written at different times and probably could be merged at some point.

all interested processes receive a new value.  Publishing a new value is infrequent (each
30 mins or so).  Reading the value is frequent (100times/sec).  Both SharedValue and NodeCache
look similar - is there any reason I should pick one over the other?
