> The principal cache in Jackrabbit normally does a good job in ensuring good performance
in critical areas like ACL evaulation. However, the cache only includes successful principal
lookups, so an ACE that references a missing (or mistyped) principal can cause notable performance
issues as a new principal lookup is needed whenever the node covered by such an ACL is accessed.
> To solve that problem I propose that we extend the principal cache to also cover negative
principal lookups.
