Good point.

I didn't do any testing after my cache patch other than to look at the 
time for site generation. Theoretically it should only be requested once

We need to be careful about using it in a dynamic environment though, it 
destroys the dynamic behaviour of edit and see results immediately.

That looks like a useful addition. Maybe if I get the time I'll 
resurrect the discussion about that patch [1] and get it applied to 
Cocoon trunk. I don't want to apply it as the discussion you link to 
seems to imply it should be improved upon.

In the meantime, I'm afraid there are more pressing things.
